Concrete canvas: a world-changing idea

Concrete canvas wins Saatachi & Saatachi World-Changing Ideas Award.

After all the recent disasters of the past year—from the tsunami to the Pakistan earthquake to Hurricane Katrina—Concrete Canvas is a fitting choice. The idea is to create hardened, concrete structures for disaster victims that are much more durable than tents… You have a package, you add water, you add air, and you have structure.

Other finalists included spinach-powered solar cells, the Frozen Ark project, a cornstarch-based plastic alternative, and Wikipedia. (Via Erick Schonfeld)
