Disaster zones could become a little more livable thanks to the Accordion Tent. The Accordion Tent is exactly what it sounds like: a tent designed in the shape of an accordion. The tent has been designed by Ye Haoyu, Zhang Hao and Shen Yiqing.

The Accordion Tent comes flat-packed and is easy to build. Whereas other tents require you to use poles and stakes, the Accordion Tent asks only that you pull on its metal poles and stretch it out. Shelter designed for multiple families can be set up instantly in disaster areas. War and natural disasters unfortunately seem to be one thing that the march of technology and design cannot eradicate. Here's hoping that designers continue creating tools and shelters designed to aid victims of these awful events. Stats for Musical Emergency Shelters Trending: Older & Chilly
