A while back I wrote about how a group of American students had been tasked with designing shelters for rough sleepers, and I recently found out about the funky and awesome cardboard Cardborigami hut…
You probably get the idea from the pictures above, but as their website explains, Cardborigami is
A fold-able shelter that provides instant privacy and weather protection for those who have none. These shelters are water-resistant, flame-retardant and recyclable. The shelter itself is sustainable because it is manufactured locally and, after the life of the shelter, can be easily recycled.
There’s more about how Cardborigami’s designer, Tina Hovsepian, came up with the concept and why she believes it’s important for homeless people to have access to shelter and privacy, as well as food and clothing, here.
