Water shortage is a pressing issue worldwide: According to the UN, 1.2 billion people (almost one-fifth of the world’s population) live in areas where water is scarce, and another 500 million people are nearing this situation. It’s no wonder, then, that the world is seeking to produce and conserve water – both for drinking and for agriculture – especially during droughts.

Unmanned Crago Ship 2

Imagine if you could push a button to unfold a liveable house anywhere you could have it delivered. It sounds like a sci-fi film about future living, but it's more about physics meets architecture through a new concept by Ten Fold Engineering. The concept behind Ten Fold is simple. The key is a lever. Basically it's a counter-balanced folding assembly that's the DNA for a structure that can unfold from a compacted state (for transportation) to an expanded state.
