Temporary House in Sichuan

Since the newspaper is in chinese, so let me simply explain the construction of this temporary building.
The size of the the house is 20X10X8 feet. The area of the building is 200 feet square. Each house has individual window, water and electrical supply.
Each wall is 3 inch thick with 2 layers of fire fighting board.
Interlocking system is used to fix the walls together.
Since the wall is lighter and the material of the wall is soft, hence if the earthquake occur again, victim can easily remove the wall.
