Architects the world over have been trying to solve the problem of housing the displaced due to disaster or conflict. The Fold-Flat Shelter debuted at last year's DMY International Design Festival, Berlin and requires a mere 8 sq.m (approx 26 ft) of floorspace and can be expanded to 13-18 sq. m (42 - 60 ft).

Developed by Adrian Lippmann, founder of interior design firm form-al, the structure is made of composite materials and shipped as a flat-pack. Once unpacked, the panels are manually folded and, self-supporting once assembled. Read more about it at designboom.
