About the Designer: Zaky Ramadhan is an undergraduate architecture student with interest on the urban development, and also a creative whose work spans across multiple disciplines of design.

“Regenerest” is a deployable yet transformable shelter that is design for the ease of construction using simple structure and material. The projected structure consists of six panels that are connected through double knuckle hinges with locking system to improve feasibility and stability of structure transformed. As the principle of the design is to create complexity in a simplicity, each panel’s main function are made differently from each other, which enables the shelter to be transformed into 10 different forms or more. It provides multi-functional spaces for homeless, which are suitable to fulfill their basic needs based on their own interests while also providing opportunities to improve their daily activities and becoming more productive. Another idea is also to provoke cultural and ethical regeneration of Glass Alley while enhancing the unique characteristics that the site provides, which in a bigger scale can provide another cultural aspects of the Spokane city. Its modular, flexible, and dynamic form that could be easily multiplied, transformed, or mass produced will response positively to the alley and can potentially strengthen the relationships between the homeless and the locals.
