Inspired by recent earthquakes in Turkey, Hakan Gürsu has come up with Tentative Post Disaster Tent concept. Do you know that natural disasters have displaced more than 22 million people in 2013 alone, this number is 3 times more than war. That’s why it’s crucial to support the housing of these victims through sturdy temporary shelters. Tentative offers a smart compact disaster shelter solution, made of a fiber and a durable weather resistant textile that is quilted sewed with thermally insulated perlite in between.
It’s simple but innovative concept, the roof can be used to collect water while providing lighting and ventilation. The floor uses thermal insulating recyclable composite decks, in this way, heat loss is prevented while those structure’s legs keep tent floor high above the ground.

This collapsible tent is flat packed for easy transport, designed for variety of climates. Each tent is enough to house 2 adults and 2 children. In order to fully expand Tentative, simply open the covers that function as both roof and floor, raise the aluminum structural parts and the doors for stability, then stretch the fabric between the roof and the floor. This instant installation offers rapid accommodation after a disaster struck. Due to its compact size, it’s possible to transport up to 24 units in a single semi-trailer-truck.
