Core77’s latest 1 Hour Design Challenge asked designers to create solutions for pop up emergency shelters to aid those afflicted by a natural disaster such as the Haiti earthquake. Winners were just announced, and Dan Ostrowski took home the honor with his Lifetent, a portable shelter packed into a backpack that also can carry a water supply. Dan’s Lifetent is inflatable, lightweight, easy to transport, and packs away when not in use. If such shelters were to be manufactured, natural disaster refugees would be able to move about in order to find fresh water and food.
