The Hex House is an innovative new disaster shelter design, conceived by Architects For Society, that is designed to "enhance the built environment if disadvantaged communities through innovative architecture and design."

Originating out of Architects For Society's work in inventing a quickly deployable shelter for Syrian refugees in Jordan, the Hex House represents a significant improvement over other kinds of shelters thanks to the inclusion of comforting home amenities such as electricity and running water. The hexagonal shape isn't just a design shape, but is actually intended to maximize the productivity and output of solar panels situated on the roof.

Ultimately, the Hex House's easily deployable design and energy-efficient virtues make it a welcome invention at a time when new and innovative shelter designs are sorely needed given the global refugee crisis.
