This ideal refugee shelter is easy to set up, easy to transport, removable and low cost.
It is a reusing of honeycomb paper, which is light, scalable, structural sustainable, environment friendly and100% recyclable. When folded, the shelter’s thickness is just about 0.6m, which can save the transport and storage space. And just two people are needed to unfold it and set up the shelter. It may have a really good application foreground in the future.
