Designed by Australian architect Sean Godsell and entered into Architecture for Humanity's relief housing competition, FutureShack addresses the shelter needs of refugees and homeless persons around the world. 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.
