Project Description: The goal of this project is to identify new strategies for the implementation (sew/construct) of panels of various sizes and purposes (i.e. wall tents, roofs, plain walls, windowed walls, doors, vestibules, etc.) into a customizable tent system. Design and validate a modular system where individuals could buy various sewn panels but “connect” them to build their own tent design in their backyard or campground. The connection mechanism is the key to this project, with factors based on the ease and durability of the connection.
