Do you know how Tsunami affected Japanese are surviving now : Paper partition houses as emergency shelter

Everybody would have heard about Giant Tsunami and Nuclear problem which hit Japan people very badly. More than 5000 are lost and many are left homeless. During the initial stage, people took shelter in school stadiums. As days became months, there were many problems regarding privacy.

Japanese are very polite people but when it comes to privacy, everyone in the world think twice. You know what I mean.

Keeping this in  mind, Japanese Shigeru ban `architects has come up with emergency shelter paper partitions. These partitions can be used when there are natural disaster and to respect people privacy.
