In Tents Refuge Projects

Tube tents for displaced people. Made from available materials such as billboard waste and PVC pipes filled with sand for strength. Billboard tubes can be linked together. The gathering at each end of the tube helps with security, air flow and light. PVC components can be linked for water transport.

This tent design will be a part of a bigger system of "design for belonging" and utility pods that provide a solar still for water and plant cultivation.
