During the past few years, due the global economic crisis, the number of homeless people has enormously increased. More and more people abandon their homes and live under difficult external conditions.
Here is a sensitive and quite practical solution by Korean designer Hwang Kim. The ‘cocoon’ as it is entitled is a folding, portable shelter made of pre folded cardboard that can be easily assembled and transported and can provide a shelter from harsh conditions.
However, solutions like the one above should be temporary as societies have to deal with homelessness more efficiantly providing a constant shelter, as well as food and health care.
