THE PRESIDENTS MEDALS 2004

HANI FALLAHA Architectural Association Rapid Deployment/Refugee Camp Tutors: Achim Menges and Michael Hensel The project is developed as a response to the large-scale displacement of people within the Middle East. It is defined by two material parameters:

sand and wind (environmental factors); and pneumatic membranes (material system). A generative tool was devised as a culmination of this research. Starting with a geometrical exploration of pneumatic membranes, from a single-chamber component (single flip cushion), to the micro and finally the three-dimensional macro aggregate, the thesis explores the geometric articulation in relation to the logic of the material system and its performance within a highly specific environment.
