Strong Flat Pack Prefabs for Haiti?

According to the Miami Herald, architect Andrés Duany has created a temporary house — referred to as the “core-house” — that can be made of a strong, composite material and flat pack shipped to Haiti.  The prefab houses sleep eight, if arranged with the bunk beds, and can expand with additional core units.  Duany believes they could be built affordably in order to provide a temporary shelter from the elements and rain.

Stark desvela dos turbinas eólicas que darán que hablar

The twin-blade WT400W (above left) is rated at 400 W and is expected to cost...

The Mobeius house was created by Tony Owen Partners in Sydney, Australia.

As a result almost everything is custom in the home including the windows, frame and roof. The frame is created of steel that had to be specially cut to create the rounded look.

Carros reciclados para muebles y arte urbano

I suppose I have not thought about recycling shopping carts. Come to think of it, in every urban place shopping carts tend to litter the city being abandoned near apartment complexes and other general housing places.
