The Pop-Up Habitat is a modular, multi-purpose system made of reflective panels. It uses their rigidity, flexibility and collapsibility to create an array of spatial configurations. Each module consists of two halves that can be easily folded and transported in small packages.

The versatility of the material allows it to be assembled into different structures-auditoriums, galleries, canopies and other shelters. Modules can form arches and rooms or free-standing decorative structures.

Easily assembled by unskilled labor, with modules attached with nothing but Velcro, these structures can have infinite number of variations and patterns. They are playful and visually engaging, and allow even children to be architects.
