The Quakecraft challenge is to design and prototype a sustainable tiny house for extreme conditions and natural disasters, including earthquakes. Using 3D printing, laser cutting, and Computer Aided Design teams will design their very own model house and test its structural integrity on a shake table. The design thinking approach encompasses resilient community building with reference to New Brighton, South Pacific Islands and many other areas in high need of housing.

QuakeCraft - design innovation:
Developed by University of Canterbury's Quake Centre in Partnership with Ara Institute of Canterbury and Fab Lab Chch, this event has been created to inspire our next generation of designers and engineers.

Design teams work together to problem solve complex structural issues - the fundamentals of physics, geometry, calculus and material science has never been so exciting!
