How would you survive in the desert, the middle of the jungle or the top of a mountain? In this program, we’ll learn about the design strategies and techniques that have helped people live in unlikely places like these. Students will then imagine their own sites and design shelters that would enable them to survive and thrive in these extreme conditions.
