Origami to the Rescue!

Inspired by the recent quakes and tsunamis in Japan and Haiti, the Origami Shelter aims to provide fast, efficient protection for those in dire situations. The design takes from the folding principles of origami and transforms from small rectangle to a secure, durable sanctuary in minutes. The compact design can easily be shipped in large quantities and constructed by a single individual, making it a great disaster relief product.

Designer: Doowon Suh
