‘fold flat shelter’

‘fold flat shelter’ was created by german designer adrian lippmann, founder interior design firm form-al. these tent like structures are unsupported mini-houses made of light composite panels to be used as disaster relief shelters. developed with only a few elements, each panel comes in relatively small dimensions resulting in a compact building design.

adrian lippmann: fold flat shelter basic-module requires 8 sq.m of floorspace and can be expanded to 13-18 sq. m

the shelters are shipped flat and are assembled manually by first folding the walls and roof to attain the basic shape. adjustable substructures are then mounted and placed on top of this primary construction to finalize the building.
