Packaging Concept

While working on the shelter, we always had the design of the package in the back of our minds, we had made initial concept sketches earlier on and intended to pursue these ideas. The shape of the tetrahedron when folded flat did seem to prescribe a certain shape for the package, we felt it needed to echo the triangular shape of the modules, so we wanted to design the package to fit the modules rather than try and fit the modules into something that was standard. We were also aware that we needed to include the tools and instructions within the package and designed a separate compartment for storing these. We made up a 1:5 scale model to see if the shape would work, and then a full scale paper model, however we quickly moved onto a full scale card mock up as that would be the most effective in helping to work out the design.
