It is a sad thought to dwell on, but natural disasters appear to be getting worse with every year that passes, making creations like the Origami House a necessity. The Origami House is an emergency shelter that was introduced after the devastating earthquake that hit Japan. It was meant to be a temporary solution, but because of its ease to make and assemble, it took on a life of its own.

Designed by Architecture Global Aid, the Origami House is not just a great alternative to the bleak government issued shelters due to its spaciously peaked design, it is practical after the fact as well. It can be used as a table when put away as a shelter. Made out of wood painted bright colors, they float and are easily identifiable during floods.
