"AgriShelter IV" | A User Test in a Refugee Centre | Besate | July 2018

AgriShelter prototype n.4 was built in July 2018 in a refugee centre in Besate. A kit of prefabricated wooden components was produced in a wood factory in Italy and straw bales were collected from a local farmer in the region. 4 refugees, who were participating voluntarily in the project, assembled the prototype. Eventually they lived in it for one month in order to test the quality of the living space.


Moreover, this project included a collaboration with university of Bath for the project called “healthy housing for the displaced”. Data loggers that were sent by Bath team were installed inside and outside the shelter in order to monitor thermal performance and interior comfort of the prototype. The analysis of the collected data is still in progress and the collaboration will be continued by building the next prototype in Bath research park in the UK.


Location: “La Tua Isola” cooperative (refugees centre), Besate (MI), Italy Date: 01.07.2018 – 01.08.2018
