EDV-01, 日本, 2011

We have collaborated with Daiwa Lease, Japanese pre-fabrication company, to produce an infrastructure free unit as a front-line base when a disaster happens. Using 20ft ISO shipping container module, it is possible to convey the unite by the existing transportation route: by land, sea and air. At the moment, in order not to rely on the infrastructure of the site, the utility equipments have to be too big. So that it occupies the almost all of the container space and there is no room for living. EDV-01 has been designed to extend its shell above and transform itself to 2-storied after its set-up. This gimmick enable us to produce a hard shelter which is durable in the affected area as well as to avoid an useless transporting of empty container.
