As millions of homeless keep craving for a refuge, home is, undeniably, one of the most basic human needs that demand a proper solution. Hoping to provide one to all, Fresno architect Art Dyson collaborates with California State University and has come up with emergency shelters made from recycled stuff.
A team of 50 interior design and construction management students created small houses with wood pallets, cardboard, scrap lumber and can lids, as part of their spring semester project. The house includes central bath and cooking facilities, and asks people to produce eatables or daily supplies. Thus, aside from providing shelter to those needy ones, the homeless shelter project also seeks to make them self-reliant and reduce trash from landfills.
