Abstract: The possibilities of creating and witnessing a new integrated sustainable living, working and recreational infrastructure using existing technology for displaces in a natural disaster situation intrigues my senses to dream up an ‘ENABLER’ fulfilling their essential needs in this modern urban environment. It is hence in times of emergency, especially after a natural disaster that fast quality deployment of shelter, food, water and communication devices (modern times) are essential for survival. Efficient food, water and shelter distribution is an important factor for the displaced people. However some current shelters are built on an unsustainable model depending solely on foreign aids, with little or no initiative from these locals to self-help especially in an urban setup. Conflicts and crimes against the old, sick and weak arises are also a common problem due to the crowded living arrangements. Hence a liveable self- sustainable, recyclable shelter, housing 10-16 people for a period of 6 months to 2 years or even more would be an ideal solution before relocation to new rebuilt living spaces.
