The purpose of this catalogue is to present applied examples of shelter designs in a harmonised way to allow quick reference, comparative analysis and contextual assessment. By recording and presenting a diverse range of shelter design and development practice in a single document, shelter practitioners and other stakeholders may more easily access information on shelter types to inform their work.
The shelter examples presented are by no means exhaustive with respect to the range of shelter activities and practices in the field. Future revision will allow for the further inclusion of new designs and this catalogue should be considered as a ‘live’ resource.
The structure of the catalogue is built up of the following four sections:
- Global Shelter Designs
- Emergency Shelter Designs
- Transitional Shelter Designs
- Durable Shelter Designs
