The earthquake that killed thousands of people in Nepal and destroyed priceless heritage sites also flattened hundreds of thousands of normal homes and buildings. Now, the rubble from those structures is being put to use by an architect who is designing permanent shelters for those who lost their homes.
In disaster-relief situations, every minute matters. Because when thousands of people have been suddenly left homeless, you can’t just build new houses overnight. You can, however, set up one of these origami-like shelters in less than two minutes.
