SHELTER ORIGAMI is a practical solution for emergency causes.
It is intended to solve the urgent need of a refuge after a natural or man-made disaster. As a designer I came across with the idea of offering my expertise to bring immediate relief to those victims while a long-term solution is waited to be given by the authorities or other humanitarian organization. My shelter is a stucture that is easy to set up, compact and portable. Keeping in mind the previous charactertistics we can offer to the user of this shelter the privacy he needs while adjusting to the space he has. Also, the Shelter Origami has the adavantage of its low price that springs to its massive production. Finally but not least important is the fact that it is totally recyclable, hence friend of the environment.
