With the refugee crisis striking areas of conflict throughout the world, these adaptable sets of relief shelters seek to provide easy-to-assemble and comfortable housing for displaced persons.
The 'SURI' -- or 'Shelter Unit for Rapid Installation' -- is a line of modular housing made from a lightweight framework that can easily be transported and attached together for a variety of different sizes, depending on the particular function needed. Made from both recyclable and biodegradable materials, the framework is also covered in a UV-resistant and breathable membrane to help with heating or cooling of each unit.
The relief shelters are also guaranteed to last at least 10 years and are also highly sustainable. A rain water collection and filter system rests on the roof to provide drinking water, and solar panels provide a source of clean and easy to access power.
