"Special Jury Mention, PAM 2006 Awards: Industrial Buildings"

This industrial prototype was designed with a long list of possible usages - from temporary site buildings to relief housing; from school classrooms to rural clinics. It is the result of a research and development project with a steel products manufacturer using its standard off-the-shelf items. The design formulates a modular system that can be adapted into various sizes and configurations. Its advantages include speed of construction using a range of factory standard steel purlins, struts and battens. Many of the architectural features, such as shade screens, are also constructed using off-the-shelf materials.
