Concrete Canvas Shelter

In a disaster zone there is always a need for quick shelter, some temporary, and some more permanent. UK company Concrete Canvas have developed a range of shelters made from a concrete/fabric hybrid that when activated with water, can be molded into a desirable shape before it hardens. The resulting structure is waterproof, fireproof and covered with earth bullet proof as well.

This would be perfect for countries where canvas can only be a temporary measure, and as the structure gives more security, is better in areas of conflict.
