Design Research Lab

A solution for rebuilding lives after disaster.

shelter+ is a transitional shelter prototype developed by etc.lab. The design demonstrates the feasibility of a low cost, eco-friendly, and thermally comfortable living shelter that can be replicated in real-world disaster situations in Southeast Asia.

We welcome any form of partnership to bring shelter+ to communities in need. To be part of this movement, contact us at
