So this is a thought experiment: Could we create 'Flash Housing' using modern technology and techniques? This could be used for emergency housing after a disaster like the Haiti earthquake and the Japanese Tsunami, or for mass temporary housing needed for events like the Olympics and World Cup. Those temporary units could then be moved to other areas in need for semi-permanent installation.

Thoughts?
