A brilliant design called the 'Origami Shelter' could help put millions of people facing devastation a little more at ease. The design comes from Doowon Suh, who got inspiration for the project with the more recent destruction in Japan and Haiti.

The design folds out just like origami and creates a stable living space. It would only take the manpower of one person to construct, making it ideal in situations of extreme devastation. Likely the product would be made from cardboard, so it would be cheap and easy to ship from country to country.

Tent cities and refuge centers would be a lot less hectic if this product was realized. It's a tremendous design that would allow for far more comfort during times of crisis. Stats for Foldable Instant Homes Trending: Older & Mild
