Reliable engineered structures were made immediately available for life saving medical services to Rwanda refugees. Sprung provides disaster recovery applications to hurricane-affected communities worldwide. Classrooms and gymnasiums, permanent or relocatable solutions for school districts effected by disasters.
Government agencies, non-profit and non-governmental agencies, and disaster relief organizations have already made Sprung their first choice for instant building solutions. A Sprung structure is ideal for disaster recovery operations that require immediately deployable buildings for temporary emergency applications. These shelters, designed by Michael Daniel, are designed to be quickly deployed and (because they are flat packed) many can be shipped to the disaster area at one time. This shelter is made out of a lightweight plastic skin that is put on over an aluminum frame. Beefier than the first two shelters, the Green Horizon Prefab is also environmentally friendly, made from recycled materials, outfitted with solar panels, greywater recycling, wired for utilities and made of prefabricated parts.
This first response emergency shelter is super easy to transport and set up requires only one person.
Conceived by Shelter Architecture in collaboration with Architecture for Humanity, this completely off-grid prefab unit, can provide water, sanitation and renewable generated power. While we don’t know yet what kind of emergency shelters are being deployed to aid the people of Haiti, we hope that relief organizations are much better prepared than in previous situations and can offer Haiti the help they need. There may be places where people in emergencies already have access to what they need to build their own gertees. Haiti and other area not only need great emergency shelters but long term rebuiding of homes.. I applaud any action that is taken in regards to thinking of future housing with these kind of disasters. An emergency shelter interior LINER-SHELTER, designed to fit into the shipping container, could bridge the gap between the steel outer shell, which is strong and provides durable protection against the elements, and the human safety, comfort and dignity requirements within. I find it interesting you didn’t mention ShelterBox, which is one of the more successful agencies with regards to on the ground deployments.

Reaction is a company that is focused on developing relief shelters for displaced residents in disaster zones. Disaster relief is in need of emergency housing that can provide people with essential needs after a natural disaster. In the wake of Typhoon Haiyan—one of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded—effective disaster relief is once again at the forefront of the world's consciousness. This flat pack, easy to transport shelter was developed in collaboration between the IKEA Foundation and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNCHR). This beautiful and simple shelter was designed by Matthew Malone, Amanda Goldberg, Jennifer Metcalf and Grant Meecham. This high-tech shelter is a product of Diawa Lease and is about the size of a shipping container, though it can double in height with a flick of a switch. This versatile shelter was designed by Jason Ross and Sean Verdecia, graduate students at the University of South Florida. This futuristic and awe-inspiring shelter was designed by Adrian Ariosa and Doy Laufer at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles. The country still has an incredibly long road ahead of them – first, in rescuing survivors and then providing them with safe, healthy and environmentally friendly shelters.
Made out of polypropylene, the shelter can form many shapes and provide relief for up to 4 people, while rainwater can be collected from the folds. It’s designed to support victims after a disaster as a mid-term shelter, rather than as a first response.
What he found particularly frustrating was the emergency relief that was provided to all those people whose homes were destroyed in the storm. True to IKEA’s expertise in flat packing and assembly, this 188-square foot emergency shelter is easy to assemble and can be built in just four hours.
With limited need for foundations and attractive energy-efficient insulation packages available, Sprung structures are also easily dismantled and relocated for any future disaster recovery needs.
Since Hurricane Katrina, a number of individuals and companies have worked to develop new and improved emergency relief structures.
While it doesn’t include a utility hookup, beds or renewable energy generation, it does provide a quick roof over disaster victims heads.

Temporary shelters are a key part of the recovery process - read ahead for 8 examples of prefabricated, quickly deployable emergency shelters that use different technologies to address transport, power, insulation, and water needs. It comes in a compact metal locker that holds a two cubic meter shelter composed of a lightweight plastic skin which hangs on a drop-down aluminum frame. The MASTODON is a massive, all terrain, amphibious vehicle designed to bring the components of the rescue tower to the emergency site. Also, that design really has the potential to not only be an emergency shelter but can be utilized as an actual home… long term rebuilding.
Setting aside the problem of long-term housing security (which is a separate but equally important issue), there was an overwhelming demand for emergency relief housing after Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005; however, government response to the natural disaster left many without the basic shelter needs and, more importantly, many families disconnected. Because of its detachable pieces and its lightweight but sturdy design, 20 Exo units can be stacked and shipped on one tractor trailer alone, and can be set up in a few minutes no necessary tools – this easily makes it a more viable and economical option for emergency relief shelter. The shelter comes with solar-powered roofing, eliminating the need for candles or kerosene lamps, which can pose a danger of fire. After nine years of design and development, Reaction‘s Exo disaster relief shelter hopes to prevent those issues from occurring after future natural disasters. The shelter comes complete with electrical and plumbing systems, and is sturdy enough to be stackable, so an entire community of units can be linked together to share resources such as power and water. A unique aspect of this shelter is its pixelated skin that can light up and serve as signage, providing critical emergency information to people in the community. The tower itself is comprised of three-story modules, and at the top of the structure, a solar power system and wind turbines collect energy to run the shelter.
These shelters can be endlessly reused by simply swapping and repairing individual components.
