Paper Houses

A company by the name of Global Village has been creating rapid assmbly refugee shlters from paper -- http://www.gvshelters.com/ !

Rated to withstand 80MPH winds, and treated to be water and fire resistant - these things are just cool. Bigger, stronger and cheaper than cabin tents. And, they can be printed with sponsors logos - "this hurricane relief effort brought to you by Coca Cola and the Ford Motor Company"

Whee!

More on this sort of stuff in an article by Wired Mag.
