One Foundation Disaster Relief Tent


Sichuan, Gansu and Yunnan are some of the most disaster-stricken provinces in China, most often hit by earthquakes. In the aftermath, survivors still affected by the tragedy live in tents for more than a year under harsh conditions. Ensuring dignity, safety, comfort and practicality within this temporary living space is crucial. One Foundation—the first, private, charitable fundraising organization in China—set up this project to design a disaster relief tent that provides a better living experience, while expressing the One Foundation brand identity. The outcome is China's first disaster relief tent—entirely designed from a user-centered perspective, benefiting all the major stakeholders involved in its lifecycle.
