MODUSHELTER / 3D printed shelter


The Modushelter is a modular and innovative construction system combining sustainable materials with 3D printing technology.
Reconstructing communities rather than camps, it will contribute in raising the living standard for emergency situations by promoting a sense of ownership, physiological comfort and emotional safety.
The shelters can be flown by large drones in self-contained units to access even the most remote areas.
Its modularity will promote creativity allowing the refugees to design their own living space adapted to their need.
