“E-core” is a sustainable emergency housing module aiming to meet the needs of 2-8 people in 300sf. Rather than the disposable FEMA trailer, the e-core is the start of reconstruction, meant to be customized and expanded over time. Mass production and material choice make the e-core affordable and efficient. Structurally Insulated Panels provide the structure and recycled tarpaulins with a custom print provide weather resistance. The design is intended to meet LEED and ADA requirements.
