A temporary housing shelter will be on display from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 29, at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Arts as part of a special project by students from the University of Wisconsin-Madison's School of Human Ecology.
The event, "Calm After the Storm," showcases a structure made from cardboard that could be constructed within a large public Superdome-size disaster relief center.
The project, under the guidance of Lesley Sager, combines an instructor's expertise and awareness of a community need with students' skills and eagerness to do a project that responds to a community need.
It evolved out of a desire to introduce students to the process of design thinking, a human centered, collaborative and optimistic approach to design. The shelter and furniture will be the end result of a series of steps and discoveries the students partook in.
