Natural disasters are an imminent, serious threat and for this reason, architects around the globe are increasingly developing disaster-proof homes to assure people feel secure in times of need.

Some of the materials employed to construct these houses are bamboo, resin-filled cardboard, tires and floating adobes, all of which are portable and durable, not to mention quick to set up. Every aspect of these disaster-proof homes is thoroughly evaluated; surprisingly, a variety of these constructions are even eco-friendly.  

Although some of these shelters are more simple than others, the majority are constructed and designed to fulfill humans’ basic needs, as they are usually equipped with climate-controlled systems, electrical power and solar-powered water-heating systems. There is also the option of a moving post-disaster house, in case you need to travel to another harsh climate.

One of the most interesting concepts is the Tornado House developed by 10 design, which consists of a house that ducks into the ground to escape from the most violent winds. Check out these disaster-proof homes and gain some tips for staying safe from the elements.
