This chapter identifies the contemporary modular and mobile architectural constructions relevant to the movements of the people across the globe. Examples of constructs are compact living units designed by Andrea Zitel and the Mobile Dwelling Unit designed by Lot-ek using a shipping container. It also suggests that the structures be made portable and quick to assemble—designed for both free movers and refuge seekers. A good example would be Shigeru Ban’s modular paper tube architecture for victims of natural disasters and other socio-political disturbances.
