ShelteR³: Respond, Recover, Resist

Motivated to save lives by the EF5 tornado that devastated Joplin, Missouri in 2011, the Drury University and Crowder College Solar Decathlon team developed ShelteR³: Respond, Recover, Resist. Designed to serve immediately after a natural disaster as an environmentally conscious disaster-response command center or disaster-relief housing, to expand and become permanent housing as the community begins to recover, and to resist the wind loads and debris-cloud projectiles of future tornadic storms.
