Shipping Container Bunkers
This Survival Room Safeguards Lives During Disasters

Although you’d be pretty much screwed if this thing ended up at the bottom of the ocean, the Survival Room by Phil Pauley is a brilliant idea for bunker in earthquake-prone areas, for example.

The designer proposes a heavy-duty capsule engineered and built from scratch, which ends up looking much like a corrugated cargo crate, but boasts singular sturdiness and stability. The shell of the compartment would be insulated with bi-steel, protected with a reinforced steel frame and stiff cladding. A round vault door can seal the chamber shut, allowing atmospheric systems within to do their job.

The emergency bomb shelter prides itself on the ability to regulate oxygen levels, while expelling carbon dioxide and any toxic gases. The washroom-equipped Survival Room by Phil Pauley has airplane cabin-style seating for 70 people and has the technological means to communicate with a monitoring station.
