Tetrahedron Template

Throughout the process of designing our kitset shelter, we have been thinking of ways to further include materials from the end user’s domestic interior. One way we decided we could do this was to include a template of the tetrahedron modules with the kitset; this would allow the user the opportunity to add on to the structure using materials found within their home, be it starched sheets, cardboard or other materials that can be given a bit of strength. Conversely, modules can be added that are less structured; either creating more individual pockets or a connection to the base of the structure in order to address the ground condition – perhaps a soft textile ground cover that is made up of several tetrahedrons sewn together and filled with clothes or towels to create a large pillow or mattress?
