Lantern project follows a design and alternative methodology for temporary housing shelter for war refugees in the Middle East.  A cost effective and sustainable emergency shelter prototype gives response to material, structural, assembly, package, transport and flexibility questions. A qualitative living context is defined either as a unit or as a mass community.

Finally, Lantern is the protective hug, which deeply holds the light of hope for this kind of persons in need.
