This is a portable habitation device that another student and myself designed. We call it the Archi-tent because it is a design your own tent. We designed it for the homeless, so that they could have individuality and uniqueness. The tent is based on a rigid spine that has several pivot points. The spine can be made into many different shapes, and there are also support pieces that twist out from within the main spine to support the fabric membrane. The membrane is able to conform to these different shapes. The tents and spine can also be joined into units to make larger tents for families or communities of people.
