FutureShack

by Josh Rubin in Culture on 15 June 2004

Designed by Australian architect Sean Godsell, FutureShack is an experiment in emergency housing.

Constructed from one ready-made twenty-two-foot-long shipping container, FutureShack is equipped with a minimum of industrial materials and is entirely self-contained, which enables multiple structures to be stacked and shipped to crisis sites. Maintained by solar power, FutureShack is ready for occupancy within twenty-four hours.

A prototype of the FutureShack can be viewed at the Cooper Hewitt's Arthur Ross Terrace and Garden through 10 October 2004.
