Within Himachal Pradesh, India, there is a scarcity of proper temporary shelters built to withstand rough weather patterns, creating difficulty for the diverse, transitory populace. With the goal of creating a marketable, portable shelter, we investigated using origami as a tool to improve shelter quality. We have collaborated with IIT students and professors to understand the stakeholders' shelter constraints using interviews. Based on their responses, we designed and built a prototype that will address both origami and their needs.
