Fantastic, cool, efficient alternative shelter designs
Of course, all these ideas sound wonderful in concept. And the designers are heartbreakingly well intentioned. Yet with rare exceptions, these shelters almost never end up stretching over the head of a needy refugee. When I asked U.N. workers why all these concepts remain drawings on a shelf, instead of real improvements in refugee lives, the general response I got equated to: ”Uh-huh, sounds nice. We use tents.”
