Aims: Presenting practical strategies to enhance the quality of temporary housing and elucidating the role of prefabrication and semi-prefabrication on achieving efficient architectural goals. Outlining the prefabrication and semi- prefabrication process are among the main aims of the research.

Methods: In this study, a combination of descriptive-analytical and exploratory methods was employed to examine specialized texts in the field of temporary housing design and the implemented examples in both domestic and international contexts. The study also investigated innovative approaches to semi-prefabricated construction. The main objective was to investigate and extract design approaches and indicators for temporary housing. Questionnaires were distributed to experts in the field of temporary housing design and implementation.

Findings: According to the research findings, attention to user privacy (as a people-centric component) with an average rank of 5.14, resistance of materials against earthquakes and fires (as a materials-centric component) with an average rank of 4.03, and ultimately, the utilization of innovative prefabrication and semi-prefabrication methods (as a design-centric component) with an average rank of 3.44 play the most significant role in enhancing the quality of temporary housing

Conclusion: From the standpoint of experts, there is a greater emphasis on material-centric and people-centric approaches in the design of temporary housing, while design-centric approaches and their components are deemed less significant by expert groups. Consequently, by utilizing the existing indicators within the design-centric component and enhancing the qualitative aspects of its strategies (including the incorporation of innovative semi-prefabrication methods), the quality of temporary housing can be elevated.
