Architect, headquarters volunteer and DLYGAD featured designer Pouya Khazaeli recently sent us some images of design/build charrettes and workshops in Mashhad, Iran, and Grenoble, France, led by his team of Tehrani professionals and the guiding principles of Architecture for Humanity.
Consistent with his contribution to the latest Damn volume, Khazaeli pursues rapid emergency shelters for those with the very fewest resources...and is not satisfied with just one formulation.
Both charrettes explore reed an earth construction, built on flexible, small tree limbs and allowing for a bit of geometric poetry. In the case of the CRAterre event in Grenoble, the structure was devised for users of a...smaller scale. Take a look.
