Collapsible bathroom / Shower room

Collapsible bathroom
Collapsible bathroom



People living in refugee camps have a roof over their heads, but it is difficult to guarantee sufficient sanitary facilities. This speedy collapsible bathroom is space-saving and can be transported easily; what’s more, people can set up a series of public bathrooms in a short period of time. Using geometric shapes to form a group of separate shower rooms, this design maximizes space and utilizes it rationally. If there is not enough water pressure, the small water pump can be driven by the foot pedal, and the water supply can be provided by manual labor, which greatly improves the sanitary conditions for the refugees.

The rapidly collapsible bathroom can help improve sanitary conditions for large-scale use.
You reap what you sow. Thank you, Liu Xuefei, for your constant support and trust. This design, I do believe, can convey good intentions and affect many people.
