A group of design students working out of the Wood Program Studio over at the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture in Finland have come up with an alternative temporary shelter design that aims to cater to everyone from homeless people to asylum seekers and even broke students.

This temporary shelter, dubbed Kokoon, features a trio of prefabricated sections that are secured in place using sealant, with the entire assembly process taking only a single day. Despite its compactness and the fact that it takes up very little room, the temporary shelter offers a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and dining area spread out over its three floors.

The Kokoon project is a great example of space-saving shelter architecture that could be used to help people in need.
