Portable Folding Shelter / Pharos University

Posted in Events_Interviews - Events_Interviews by * FORMAKERS

The project is located at Pharos University in Alexandria, Egypt, Faculty of Arts and Design, through Furniture Design 3 course, Code IDF 4102.

The shelter is mainly based on designing a lightweight, portable and foldable unit utilizing the origami trend as a free prototyping tool for designing a portable shelter with diverse forms.


Students used diverse materials as canson, foil, stencil and wood in their first trials.

The final prototype was made from wood which was assembled using metal joints.

The goal was to transform the flat wooden sheet into a set of foldable forms through folding techniques.
