A roof, a door, some windows, a floor. All houses have them, but
not all houses are alike. Some have wings (airplane homes), some
have wheels (Romany vardoes), some float; some are made of
straw, some of snow and ice. Some are enormous, some are tiny;
some are permanent and some are temporary. But all are home.
Take Shelter explores the way people live all over the world and
beyond—from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from an underground
house in Las Vegas to the International Space Station. Everywhere
people live, they adapt to their surroundings and create unique
environments, using innovative techniques to provide that most
basic of needs: shelter.
