HOPE / Product 1.19


Hope is a versatile modular shelter unit that acts as a first responder in case of an emergency. It is mass produced and fast deployed with a compact D.I.Y. design in order to promote individual ownership as well as social bonding post-crisis. Each unit features a set of components and design elements to respond to the needs of the users sustain-ably and functionally. Units could be re-purposed to function as a public space such as a classroom or a retail shop in order to encourage faster recovery and growth of the damaged society. Furthermore, it caters to all cultures and environmental conditions, which makes it restore hope where needed.
