Able Nook Disaster Housing
The Able Nook is a new alternative for disaster housing, offering a prefabricated and flat-pack shelter that can be assembled quickly with just minimal tools or skill.
Developed by two graduate students from the University of South Florida, the Able Nook's design is based on identical aluminum panels that can clip together with needing any tools. The design also features a narrow room with an arched roof covered in solar panels that collects and channels rainwater to a collection tank. The unit can be placed on uneven surfaces with the use of adjustable footings.
Although originally envisioned as disaster relief housing, the Able Nook could also be used for modular classrooms or military applications.
