The “One Piece” refuge house

For the geographic condition, there are earthquakes, heavy rains and landslide occurred in Taiwan. These damages make people homeless. For instance, the 921 Earthquake in Taiwan in 1999 destroyed thousands of houses. At that time, the government need to hurriedly build up refuge houses. The construction, however, still took two weeks. Therefore, people suffered from disasters usually have to live in tents at the beginning. Th erefore, we came up an easy idea of refuge house which can be built up instantly. We don’t need much time and effort to build it up, and it costs less.
