Carboard Shelter by Atelier OPA

Japanese architectural studio Atelier OPA has designed 2 types of temporary shelters than can be easily assembled using cardboard. It’s obviously not meant to be used indoors, but rather in gymnasiums where most of the evacuees are currently living without basic privacy. The designers, whom recently received a donation to deliver 300 units to the Tohoku region, released the blueprints under the Creative Commons license so anyone can build one.

The efforts compliment those being made by other architects in Japan such as Shigeru Ban and Yasutaka Yoshimura.

  2. @Claire – a temporary capsule hotel?
