Summary Outside the Box_Low & High Technologies for the Emergencies 
Description Outside the Box_Low and High Technologies for the Emergencies

The competition "Outside the Box_Low and High Technologies for the Emergencies" is focused on identifying design ideas for resolving various problems in emergency situations.

At this point in time the emergency has become the norm. During recent years numerous natural phenomena have upset the lives of many communities scattered across the globe. Examples include Fukushima in Japan, Haiti, L'Aquila in Italy and New Orleans in the United States.

The Box is a small temporary structure capable of offering various services: a small space for work, a centre of organisation and meetings for governments or other bodies dealing with and managing an emergency.

A space that is simultaneously a workstation and information centre open to public, with free wifi and internet access to allow to people remain in touch with the rest of the world.
A fundamental role in the elaboration of the design proposal must be entrusted to technology, whether low- or high-tech.

The challenge launched by the Competition is also that of uniting two unavoidable aspects of contemporary design: sustainability and parametric design (the use of parametric modelling software to develop three-dimensional models).
