Origami has inspired countless gadgets: bicycles, MP3 players, and now, homeless shelters?
Sounds like a gimmick, but yeah. Tina Hovsepian, a recent grad of USC’s architecture school, has invented a cardboard shelter that pops up like an origami balloon. A repeating diamond shape in the walls keeps the structure stiff. When it’s time to move, the shelter folds flat, making it easy to cart around. She calls it — wait for it! — Cardborigami.
