The Mobile Hospital by Kukil Han is a conceptual solar-powered hospital designed specifically to help victims of natural disasters. The Mobile Hospital has the look of a shipping crate and is designed to be carried into remote areas via helicopter.
The shipping crate look of this hospital is intentional as it helps make aerial transport easier. Once on the ground, the Mobile Hospital folds out to become a three-chamber first-aid facility complete with rooftop solar panels that provide power in a pinch. Han has wisely designed multiple Mobile Hospitals, with each unit functioning as a different part of a normal hospital. Additional units include features such as an x-ray room, morgue and patient consultation center. A hospital such as this could help save many lives as poor medical care often adds greatly to the death toll immediately following a natural disaster.
