This month, the AF Group had a virtual meeting with Brazilian researchers. The aim of the meeting was to discuss the PARA TY prototype which was designed by them at the International Virtual Architectural Design Studio (IVADS), a one week workshop organized by the Projetar Research Group (Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte).
Their proposal (a shelter for natural disasters, sanitary crises, or accidental catastrophes) investigates convergences between vernacular strategies of adaptation to water bodies and systematic design methods based on adaptability concepts proposed by the AF Group.
The work was publised in the Projetar Magazine and it can be downloaded here (only in Portuguese/PT): https://periodicos.ufrn.br/revprojetar/article/view/27780
