Cultural Connections in Humanitarian Shelter: A Concept Component for Constructing Shelter
This research has captured the cultural aspect of perception, psychology & cognition with humanitarian shelter. The scope of phenomenology through the use of human perception has proven that it can have a beneficial outcome for the user by offering choice (Lockton 2010). This choice to act on an impulse to do the right action by use of instruction by form, colour and position. These simple processes could trigger the correct process or action towards recovery. Simple techniques from ‘Design with Intent’ could instigate a process for a universal function that steers away from the one-size-fits-all shelter concept and help develop a transitional shelter structure that can be customised for cross-cultures.
