Kahuta transitional housing for post-disaster situations


Designer: Alexandre Moget.

With a number people being displaced by natural disasters every year, the demand for temporary shelters is on the rise. Designed back in 2007, the Kahuta is transitional housing designed for post-disaster situations. It’s basically an inflatable structure, which is easy to use and quick to set up. It can be either used alone or with other Kahutas to create a community. Inspired from the habitat of nomad tribes, the structure is covered with a web of double-thick felt, which can create an outdoor space for storage or assembly. Zeroing in on certain nasty realities of life, the Kahuta can be easily transported from one place to the other for emergency transport forced population.
