Paper Partition System 2 – Fukuoka Earthquake 2005


This paper partition system was developed for refugees form the Fukuoka earthquake that struck in 2005. The main issue in the first phase at evacuation sites is the over-crowding density of refugees. Privacy is needed due to the close proximity between neighbors in every life. Simple paper honeycomb boards were offered for insulation and to create partitions between families. In the beginning it was used to only cover the floor during the early crowded period; after the population decreased, the boards were used to create partitions for night time privacy.
