Fact #267

Tine Hovesepian from the School of Architecture, University of Southern California developed an origami shelter made of cardboard. It can be used as a temporary outdoor shelter for victims of natural disasters or for the homeless. These origami shelters are surprisingly sturdy and are water & flame resistant. They can be collapsed flat for easy storage & transport.
