Steel reinforced wood fiber composites, by Deltawood

Deltawood presented prototype elements made out of a mix of steel and wood fibres. Light weight combined with greater strength could make these elements relevant for use in the humanitarian sector. During the display session it was discussed whether these elements would be more relevant, in sheltering, when combined with other materials. One consideration to make in that respect is cost, use of local materials and skills.
