For disaster-hit areas, Textile-Wall is a foldable cell panel made of semi-rigid PVC bars and covering layers in textiles, which can be filled with a stabilizing or insulating material. Its dual use as first repair and for reconstruction follows a recent trend in emergency aid to stimulate self-repair. Textile-Wall is a socially responsible design, low-cost, ecologically reliable, replicable at large scale and adaptable everywhere. It may contribute to improving the lives of many displaced persons and foreign refugees.
