Support elements

New York architects Gans and Jelacic addressed refugee housing by designing households with support elements and integrated functions. Each household is equipped with one support element, i.e., a toilet and another one integrating a water tank and an oven. The elements can be turned into shelter by throwing plastic sheeting on top and covering the space between the two elements. The toilet and the oven element can later on be integrated into permanent housing.
