Emergency Shelter Exhibition (ESE) comes to Melbourne in May 2013 with full-scale temporary housing prototypes by local architects.  

Curator Jun Sakaguchi established this exhibition series in response to the string of natural disasters over the past few years. “The exhibition is to propose shelters that could not only protect people from rain and other elements in emergency situations, but also to provide a space to feel secure and comfortable in a disastrous environment. This is fundamental to the recovery process.”

Previously in Sydney (1–3 September 2011) and Brisbane (17–20 July 2012), the exhibition will be in Melbourne 1–5 May, at Federation Square.
