This unique pop-up shelter by Alastair Pryor serves as a foldable crisis relief shelter that is lightweight and collapsible. The Compact Shelter is made up of a number of origami-like folds, which helps you to be able to set it up in about two minutes.
The shelter is large enough to accommodate about two adults and two children and it is made from UV-stabilized polypropylene, which makes it suitable for use in a number of different climates. When it's fully collapsed, the design is easy to store and transport, weighing in at old 35 lbs. The beauty of the design is that it's also modular, so that multiple units can be positioned side-by-side in order to create a larger temporary living space in case of a disaster.
