Streetlamp shelter / Concept Shelter

Streetlamp shelter
Streetlamp shelter

The streetlamp shelters are not just a shelter design, it is a emergency response system design for future. Its concept is that the victims will not wait for the shelters, it should be the shelters waiting for the victims.
Japan has a huge amount of parks which becomes emergency parks after disaster. I consider if the shelters are hiding in the parks by a familiar carrier, victims can easily help themselves first without distribution from government. Save more time, save more life.
This shelter works as a streetlamp at usual, when earthquake happens, the switch will come down by the shaking power, and victims can open it and keep save.
