Refuge Wear is a project by Lucs Orta. She designed a kind-of urban armour:
In 1992, Lucy Orta began making a series of drawings entitled Refuge Wear as a response to situations of human distress and unsuitable social environments. She then fabricated a series of these temporary shelters that transformed into items of clothing and transport bags and gave them the generic term Body Architecture. The first in the series was named Habitent: a portable habitat catering for minimum personal comfort and mobility for the inhabitant. Further Refuge Wear prototypes were fabricated as personal environments in response to social condition and could convert according to need, necessity or urgency. Refuge Wear became synonymous for clothes and shelter in extreme conditions; they provided vital mobility and waterproof shelter for the Kurd refugee population; temporary protection and shelter for natural disasters such as the Kobe earthquake; mobile sleeping bags for the homeless; and immediate practical aids such as water reserves, integrated medical supplies and burial bags in an attempt to ameliorate the horrific hygiene problems of the Rwanda crisis (1994/95).
