Episode 26: Emergency Shelter Exhibition 2013


The recent Emergency Shelter exhibition in Melbourne’s Federation Square was the third year this exciting display has taken place, under the curatorship of NSW architect Jun Sakaguchi. Previously held in Brisbane and Sydney, this years exhibition was well curated, well designed and well attended. Major constructions and light-weight solutions were both on display, showcasing the wide range of design responses to the brief.

Arc Agency GM Marcus Pettinato supervised fund raising and sponsorship and co-ordinated the media launch event, a huge success. In our feature story we interview the organisers and designers, and bring you in-depth coverage of some of the best shelters from Nettleton Tribe, Woods Bagot, Cox Architects and Techne.
