Steam Nurse

Healthcare workers’ belongings are exposed to more contamination inside hospital environments.

Project Steam Nurse creates a smart lockers to fully protect and sterilise clothes and belongings of hospital staff. It is divided in two parts: the upper part for clothing and personal belongings, fully enclosed and can also be transported like a suitcase; and the lower one, where the work uniform is placed and cleaned by chemicals and UV light.

SOAP

Homeless people have limited-to-zero access to the basic hygiene items against COVID-19.

Project SOAP (Sanitizing Open Access Point) aims to make essential hygiene accessible for everybody in the city, regardless of their situation. SOAP is a simple soap container that connects to any water source available in the public space. Its open source design makes it possible for anyone with a 3D printer to manufacture and install it.

Touch Time

Studies show that viruses can stay on surfaces for several days depending on the material.

To safely consume objects that can’t be disinfected (some food items, paper, electronics, etc.), project Touch Time proposes smart NFC tags are attached to products brought from outside the house. Users then use an app to scan the tag and monitor, based on the date of delivery, when the item is deemed safe, after its own quarantine.

CookIn

Restaurants are among the business suffering the most from the impact of social distancing.

CookIn is a virtual system that allows restaurants to share their recipes through a real-time video session with home chefs. Users will register, pay for the experience and receive a package of supplies to carry out the simultaneous preparation of a meal with the chosen restaurant.

Kinetic Revival Box

The quick and unpredictable escalation in the number of patients during a disease outbreak challenges the ability of health authorities to increase hospital capacity.

The quick and unpredictable escalation in the number of patients during a disease outbreak challenges the ability of health authorities to increase hospital capacity.

Project Kinetic proposes prefabricated and modular building blocks for a quicker and adequate increase in healthcare infrastructure in case of pandemics.

Gem

Seniors with dementia are not only at a higher risk for the virus, but at a higher risk for loneliness, isolation, and depression, while their family members are at a loss of how to engage meaningfully.

Seniors with dementia are not only at a higher risk for the virus, but at a higher risk for loneliness, isolation, and depression, while their family members are at a loss of how to engage meaningfully.

Gem is a tool that allows caregivers to learn cognitive therapies to do with seniors with dementia – via tele therapy. Activities are designed to utilise scientifically proven methods for reducing dementia decline while also fostering companionship and resilience for all parties involved.

Antiviral Gloves

Contrary to medical gloves that serve as a barrier between germs and the skin hands, the Anti-viral gloves can reduce the spread of infections.

By using a disinfectant agent (Chlorhexidine and Chloroxylenol), the Anti-viral Glove kills virus on surfaces upon contact.

QuaranTent

The QuaranTent addresses the burden that quarantine might pose on the home and other members of the household.

Designed as a collapsible tent that allows infected or exposed people to quarantine themselves without causing entire portions of homes to be shuttered off. It includes a small mattress, miniature sink, toilet, shower and a small window to serve and receive food. The optional tarp floor allows for outdoor deployment, if needed.

LOCABOX

During the pandemic, online orders and home delivery are increasing exponentially, putting a strain on the delivery drivers and creating potential contamination risks.

LOCABOX is a communal delivery station where drivers can drop off packages for several residents, who can collect them at allocated time-slots.

Crowdsourced COVID Map

The risk of contamination and new disease outbreaks can be significantly lowered by mapping the risk profile of each individual.

Project Crowdsourced COVID Map gathers personal health data provided by its app users to map contamination risk by location. Through anonymised crowdsourced data of users (symptoms, potential exposure, travel and movement history), it will allow for transparency and increased data-driven decision making and public policies.

In times when the more we know the more equipped we are. The Crowdsourced COVID Map pools and generates data to identify high risk areas and people. Through anonymised crowdsourced data of users symptoms, potential exposure, travel and movement history and other information, it will allow for transparency and increased data-driven information.

Kopi-19

Small-scale businesses such as Singapore’s food hawkers are particularly vulnerable as not everyone in that community can immediately adapt their business models to benefit from food delivery apps.

To help food stall owners alleviate their current cash-tight situation, Project Kopi-19 allows community members to purchase credit for future use, pre-paying small businesses via existing platforms like PayLah!. Whilst it addresses a specific concern for Singapore, Kopi-19 can be implemented across geographies and target various vulnerable industries.

Dubai – Cities within the City of the Future

The urban sprawl of Dubai creates a unique challenge during COVID-19 Pandemic.



Project Cities within the City proposes a urban design study to map, understand and archive how cities like Dubai, with a complex network of neighborhoods, has coped with COVID-19, from a city design point of view. It is meant to be used as a reference for future pandemic scenarios.
