Tent/Cot Concepts - For this project our studio was tasked with designing a combination cot and tent for Montgomery Marketing Inc. to be used by the U.S. Marines. We met with R.O.T.C. students at Auburn to learn about needs specific to soldiers. We also researched new materials for both the structural and fabric parts of the design.
Tent/Cot 1/6 Scale Model - My design, seen above, was chosen as one of six from the studio to go to the next level of development. It used slats instead of poles for the cot supports that could fold in order to reduce setup and takedown time.
