This book displays some innovative concepts for reuseable emergency housing. Despite the yearly predictability of natural disasters (e.g. hurricanes in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico), there appears to be no interest on the part of the United States government, the United Nations and relief agencies for such housing. For those who are intrigued by weird, odd or just unusual ideas, I would rate "Mobitecture: Architecture on the Move" at 4.0 stars.
