Solar powered shelter wins design award

An emergency shelter that uses solar power has won both the Architecture award and 2017 Grand Prize at the Beazley Designs of the Year awards. A temporary, weatherproof structure, the Better Shelter has been designed for use by people displaced by conflict and natural disasters. The IKEA Foundation and the UNHCR (UN Refugee Agency) were involved in the Better Shelter's development. Solar power is integral to the Better Shelter's design, with a panel installed in its roof. The panel charges an LED light within the shelter, which can be used for four hours during the night when fully charged. Mobile phones can also be charged via a USB connection in the lamp.
