|Title:||DISASTER RELIEF SHELTERS : TRANSITIONAL SHELTER FOR REFUGEES IN TROPICAL SOUTH EAST ASIA||Authors:||LIAW PUI SHIEN PATRICIA||Issue Date:||2003||Citation:||LIAW PUI SHIEN PATRICIA (2003). DISASTER RELIEF SHELTERS : TRANSITIONAL SHELTER FOR REFUGEES IN TROPICAL SOUTH EAST ASIA. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Mankind has constantly been affected by disasters, whether it is natural, or man-made. As houses are destroyed, people need to find shelters to stay in. Much of the relief housing available for disaster areas has been temporary solutions to a disaster situation. Often, they have been standard prototypes that are used in all situations, thus not able to provide adequate shelter for longer-term usages. This thesis aims to response to the current situation of relief aid to disaster in tropical regions, in terms of shelter and housing provision. PROTOTYPE The design includes a prototype disaster relief shelter appropriate to the Tropical region, & proposals for implementation of shelter onto different terrain condition. The system is also flexible to adapt to variation in settlement layouts based on the population size, usages & function. The Project aims to balance the technical & economical reality of building disaster relief shelters, as well as providing the needs of the refugees, in terms of survival as well as psychologically living and healing.||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/244698|
