Abstract

Keynote Address General survey of deployability in architecture F. Escrig School of Architecture, University of Seville, Spain I. INTRODUCTION. Proposals that we know today as very advanced and technologically complexes, based on deployability are nevertheless as old as the civilization is. From the moment when men abandoned caves and caverns to search for better life, they need shelters built by them most times of rapid assembling made with matherials found anywhere or by pieces easy to be transported. Architecture built with earth, straw, branches or skins is the remote precedent of movable and rapidly assembled structures and is related directly with the object of our recent researches. Fig. 1.
