Title: A house-turned storm shelter
Author: Owens, Kimberly Dawn
Abstract: Technology should be used as the primary form -giver when designing in regions where the architecture must withstand the inevitable and uncontrollable forces of violent hurricanes . A residence built in a hurricane -prone region should be designed to provide protection against the most violent wind storms , meet the needs of its users , and fit into its surrounding context . Identity and physical comfort should be heavily considered when building a structure in the new Presidential Estates gated community of Dade County , Florida due to its unique culture and extreme weather conditions .
