When disaster strikes, one of the most pressing concerns is how to quickly house a large number of people made suddenly homeless. It can take time to transport temporary shelters to the areas of greatest need – time that can cost lives. We have already seen innovative approaches to building shelters, such as shelters made from sustainable materials and a flat-pack home. Now, three Polish designers have created a design for a new type of large-scale, portable shelter. Dubbed the Skyshelter.zip, the entire structure folds up. This allows it to be packaged into a relatively small box, suitable for transport by helicopter.
