    Edward Denison and Richard Cawthray published a book The Big Book of Packaging Prototypes that is the inspiration of this submittal.  With new methods of binding and seaming plywood and wood composites typical of flat panel materials, we can design and build for ease of assembly and transport as well as design for disassembly.  This way, temporary shelters can actually be something of aesthetic AND functional value that places value on innovative technologies.

    The concept of flat-pack furniture and boxes could certainly be used on a larger scale to increase efficiency in transportation, assembly, and disassembly.

    The beauty of cardboard is that it bends to form its own folded hinge, without loosing the integrity of the continuous surface.  How do you manipulate the plywood so that it does not just become an assembly of parts?
