VSAIA 2012 Competition

Cape Hatteras, NC | 2012

A weekend competition for the VSAIA to design emergency shelter in the Outer Banks that has aspects of temperance and permanence.

A concrete shell nestled in the dunes of Cape Hatteras, NC, gives temporary shelter to those in need. It's sloped surface braces against the harsh winds and storms, collecting the ever-moving sand dunes until it becomes one of them. Only then is its true permanence achieved.
