The disaster caused by the earthquake has destroyed countless homes and left many people in small villages and small cities homeless. As a result, we have created a new shelter that is more comfortable, more private and safer. We found that the air convection of a typical folding house or tent was not well designed, so we opened a skylight at the top and opened a louver at the bottom, hoping to achieve an air convection effect and improve air quality.
