Emergency settlements made up of flimsy, impersonal white tents could be a thing of the past as architects offer up incredible designs for disaster shelters that are portable, easy to assemble, durable, comfortable, adaptable and made of eco-friendly materials. Not only is the Recovery Hut a quick-assembling modular structure made from four stackable sections that weigh no more than 60 pounds each – it’s also fully recyclable, eliminating the waste that can come from a disassembled emergency settlement.
They may be small and squat, but MyHab shelters offer respite from the elements – and they’re multi-purpose. Making use of materials that are free and readily available locally is perhaps the best plan possible for emergency shelters, which makes pallets a great choice. Giving victims of natural disasters like earthquakes and hurricanes paper houses may seem like a cruel joke, but paper-centric architect Shigeru Ban has proven that paper tubes are a strong, durable, cheap and simple way to build emergency shelters. Sturdy, inexpensive and surprisingly cool-looking, the accordion-like ReCover Shelter by Mathew Malone is made from food-grade recyclable polypropylene that is folded and stacked for easy transport and is quickly and easily erected by just one person. For $35,000 you may expect a more permanent housing solution, but this recyclable cardboard house is an impressive temporary shelter. Following a disaster, displaced people may find themselves crowded together in inadequate or makeshift shelters. When climbing a mountain or hiking in a remote region, it’s not unusual to see emergency shelters dotting the landscape.
For about $100, refugees can be sheltered in Hexayurts: sturdy and space-economical structures meant to temporarily house those in need. The sphere design might the one that is more effective for victims of typhoons and other natural disasters in the third world countries.

Architects Deborah Gans and Matthew Jelacic  created this compact concept for the Architecture for Humanity competition after studying both immediate and long-term disaster housing and realizing that permanent homes are often constructed around emergency settlements. I-Beam created this emergency shelter using pallets for the walls, ceiling, floors and even some built-in furniture inside. These designs, however, go above and beyond the standard stock emergency shelters in providing more efficient, affordable and all around more interesting living quarters. Concrete Canvas shelters go a step beyond tents and other short-term shelters with a lifespan of approximately 10 years. Housing the affected population is a difficult prospect when there is no money and few supplies to construct temporary shelters.
Studio D‘s concept for temporary shelters would give each person their own living space and a place to keep their own possessions. These temporary emergency shelters come packed two to a shipping container and can be delivered via truck or cargo ship. These shelters have helped plenty of people escape harm in case of avalanches or stay safe while awaiting rescue for some other type of emergency.
The Cocoon Emergency Shelter from designer John Moriarty is intended to keep you warm and safe until help arrives. The shelters usually available in refugee situations are tents, which are obviously of limited utility in extreme weather situations. The Sphere is simply a circular configuration of connected tents with a courtyard in the center.

The shelters use common materials and are simple to erect, making them an ideal choice for housing and protecting those made homeless due to any type of disaster. The reCover shelter is designed to be a first-response shelter for those forced from their homes due to disasters or evacuations.
You usually don’t hear about a lack of shelter in disaster areas or refugee camps, you hear about a lack of food, water, fuel, sanitation, and security. This is a result of a project when revisiting the first attempt at shelter for displaced people, when under the pressure of time and realization. Designed by Adrian Ariosa and Doy Laufer, the mobile skyscraper is on an all-terrain amphibious vehicle base that transports the pop-up tower structure to the emergency site. Family groups get shelter from the elements and privacy but also companionship; a sense of community remains intact despite all they may have lost. Photovoltaic cells and a rainwater collection system make these shelters the ideal way to deliver functional housing to any disaster site. Golden Ears Emergency Station, on the right, is located in Golden Ears Provincial Park, British Columbia.
