Modular is a temporary and responsive architectural structure for areas affected by conflict or natural disaster, and unstable settlements. The project uses solid cardboard which can be flat-packed for transportation and then folded into trays which, when bolted together, create barrel vault structures to be used as classrooms or shelters. The structure can be built or dismantled in a matter of hours by unskilled hands and without the need for specialist tools.
Orkidstudio are developing this project with StructureMode, an award-winning engineering company based in London.
