French architect Stephanie Chaltiel and her team demonstrate an efficient construction method that includes the usage of drones. During the 2018 London Design Festival, the professional displayed possible technological implications within the narrative of refugee camps and disaster zones through 'Mud Shell.'
The project presents a rapidly efficient construction method that will prove extremely useful for time-sensitive situations and hard-to-reach sites. In the span of four days, Stephanie Chaltiel showcased how drones can be used to create functional temporary abodes. 'Mud Shell' is a dome-like shelter that is comprised out of wooden lattice and hay bags. The architects used a drone to create a membrane that brings the structure together. The demonstration showed a drone spraying the framework of the structure with clay and fiber.
