Biomimicry- Shelter

Primary and Secondary research sources were used in the process to choose a user- in this case Aboriginal homelessness in Australia. The Aboriginal population in Australia have a strong link to their homelands which are often located in rural areas where government funding for infrastructure is not provided or is limited. This in turn creates homelessness in the term that the people of the land who wish not to leave it are without adequate shelter from the harsh Australian climate for indefinite periods of time while Governments pass legislation and delay the process of providing housing in these areas.

A Temporary solution was implemented in this project titled "Community Squared project" and a fully sustainable community layout was proposed to keep families together and on their homelands, while awaiting construction of government housing. Innovative use of recycled materials were used and leisure & lifestyle needs provided for and at least 2 necessities off Maslow's hierarchy of needs.
