‘Fold flat shelter’ beacons ingenuity in disaster relief shelter design

Only a decade into 21st century and we’ve already witnessed homeless millions getting affected by some of the worst catastrophes. Given that design for disaster relief shelters is all over our minds. German designer Adrian Lippmann, founder of interior design firm form-al has constructed a ‘fold flat shelter’ for the purpose. The tent like structure designed using a variation in geometrical lines best represents design ingenuity for disaster relief shelters. The unsupported mini house made of light composite panels is an adjustable structure which can be assembled and disassembled. The shelter is erected by first folding the walls and roof to attain the shape with substructures placed later to finish the simple construction. The ‘Fold flat shelter’ was on display at DMY International Design Festival, Berlin 2010.
