Shelter: Fall2010 Vancouver, BC
presented during the iDMAa Conference at Emily Carr University of Art + Design


Shelter, food and clothing are basic human need. Within urban contexts people experience many stresses on their ability to find shelter be they geographic, financial or based in security. Many of these forces are affected by the perception of monetary value. Shelter also occupies symbolic meanings about home, family and social position. Like much in our material culture, our choice in shelter/s and how we “outfit” them reflects the user/owner’s identity. Recently the earthquake destruction in Haiti, the floods in Pakistan and the mortgage crisis in the United States refocus attention on the importance of shelter.
