Third-year architecture students at WSU’s School of Design and Construction will present portable homeless shelter designs at their school’s gallery.

Last year, a group of students, led by professor Mona Ghandi, designed portable homeless shelters as a class project. Students were required to use computational design, the use of computers and a mathematical approach to design, according to a WSU News release.

The shelters built by students also had to be affordable, flexible and compact. Each full-scale shelter stands at less than 6 feet tall, and they can be folded in several different ways to serve a variety of functions, according to the news release.

The opening reception of the exhibit is at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture gallery in Carpenter Hall. The exhibit will be open until Nov. 17. Admission is free.
