There is a man named Vinay Gupta. He did a talk called "One Network One World: Consequences of Imperialism". And he don't take no shit.
He designed and works on a thing called HexYurts. They can house three people each, approximately. 
9 billion people at deployment / 3 per yurt = 3 billion yurts
3 billion yurts * 12 sheets of material for each yurt = 36 billion sheets
4kg per sheet * 36 billion panels = ~100 billion kilos of panels

Aluminum foil over industrial cardboard. Recyclable and compostable if it fails, but it won't. Easy to assemble with duct tape or screws. 
And guess what?
Within the scope of current industrial production. Why the hell aren't we doing this.

Watch the entire talk here:

"It is much easier to end the [imperialist] system of oppression completely than it is to change who is oppressed."
