THE COOP PROJECT
Postgraduate Project - 2011
LOCATION: INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTION
In response to a UNESCO brief, the COOP Project provides rapid response disaster relief in the form of a light weight, climate controlled chicken coop. Easing demand on long term humanitarian hand-out requirements through provision of a dignified, sustainable, family sized food source.
The COOP integrates a host of climate specific modifications to ensure its universal suitability. The intention is subsidise its cost and distribution by taking advantage of the growing market in the developed world for family orientated, do it yourself sustainable food production products. The design reflects this strategy, providing stiff competition to other off the shelf chicken coops that are already on the market.
