Honeycomb Shelter
Honeycomb Shelter

It is the portable shelter for refugee from disaster or war and
we motivated by honeycomb construction that forms compact
hexagons nd Emperor penguins’ habit that maintain
their temperature by assembling in the Antarctic.
Using hexagonal construction can make shelter to the most efficient in limited place and
form unconstrained. Composition fitting situation also can make good communication
system, heat reserving and quick handling the crisis. When you fold this theoretically,
it has only 20cm thickness and less than 7ft to make portability easier. Also light and efficient
price to make from material PVC(Poly Vinyl Chloride).
