Safezone Shelter
by Shma Company

Safezone Shelter is an exhibition that aims to purify air, provide comfort for people and raise awareness about air pollution in the form of a cloud-shaped pavilion.

A cloud-shape pavilion has been designed to depict a refreshing atmosphere, while also providing a pleasant microclimate, combining dust-filtering vegetation and engineering technology like fans and humidifiers. Suitable sound and lighting have been employed to enhance the soothing experience as well.

These methods could even be applied further in other scales: mobile suits or purified bus stops, bringing good air that allows everybody to take a deep breath again.

This project has been longlisted in the exhibition design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
