VAN+ Shigeru Ban Architects provide the Paper Partition System (PPS) for shelters of the increasing number of refugees staying in neighboring countries of Ukraine. This is a simple partition system to ensure privacy for inhabitants and has been used in numerous evacuation centers in regions hit by disasters, such as the Great East Japan Earthquake (2011), Kumamoto Earthquake (2016), Hokkaido Earthquake (2018), and torrential rain in southern Kyushu (2020).
