UNSW Built Environment: Emergency Shelter Exhibition

19 08 2011

‘Support Japan’ is an exhibition created by Australian and international architects who have taken action to highlight the need for emergency shelters in disaster zones and to bring awareness to the role of the design and construction industry in the aftermath of natural disasters.

The exhibition will take place from the 1st to the 3rd of September in and around Customs House in Circular Quay. A wide variety of Australian and international architects will be designing and building shelters for the exhibition. UNSW Architecture students have volunteered to assist with the construction and dis-assemble of the shelters and during the days of the exhibition. Our students’ involvement complements UNSW’s Built Environment’s sponsorship of the exhibition.

By donating to the Emergency Shelter Exhibition you will be supporting the design and construction industry and raising awareness and aid for the thousands of people who have been displaced by Japan’s natural disasters.
