Singapore-based designer Kelvin Yong's Metaplate is a customizable emergency shelter that was created in response to the natural disasters constantly rocking our world.

The container is adaptable to different needs, made from resin-filled cardboard, and sturdy enough to withstand a variety of disaster-related conditions. 

While it would be nice to see proof that the modular unit could stay viable for long-term use, the design of Kelvin Yong's Metaplate is agreeable. The bold orange color makes it both easy to spot in, say, a tropical storm, and cuter than a traditional tent at the same time.
