Entry Description

This project explores a new type of the refuge especially for the tornadoes.
Existing refuge houses are constructed in the form of after-the-fact remedy. In this case, the losses will be relatively large. In the era when space demand is gradually expanding, super-floors will certainly exist.
Therefore, I will build the structure deep into the ground, reducing the degree of shaking, more like the seed body in the soil, and the ground as a natural protective layer.
Additionally, considering the local power generation structure is transforming, I integrate a research center into the township.
