The Story: The ASU E3 House is a prototypical dwelling designed and constructed for use in remote or disaster relief situations where electricity and access to public sanitation are unavailable. Originally built by students in the Building Science and Appropriate Technology programs as a response to the common FEMA trailers used for relief after Hurricane Katrina this mobile unit is designed to be self-sufficient and adaptable to a variety of environmental and cultural situations. The E3 house gets its name from considering its design's effect on environment, economy and ecology.
