A blueprint for a deployable disaster relief system using standard shipping containers.”Michael Donaldson’s thesis describes how field hospitals, workshops, shelters, schools, barracks, security units and even offices can be packed into the standardized containers. As he says, �I was looking at something that can help with the re-building of social infrastructure such as hospitals and schools after war or disaster…There needs to be something that takes over after disaster response teams such as the UN or military leave � which is typically about 30 days.�
I love these modular ideas. Makes us feel that we can build like in Lego. Prefabricated houses: cheap, quick easy to move. However a metal container is hot in summer and cold in winter – the reality might be very unpleasant.
