Built with Transient Living in Mind, Pods Pull the Homeless Up from Streets
Architect James Furzer proposes a high-minded way to integrate the 750 that sleep every night on London's streets
Around 750 people sleep on London streets every night, the crowdfunding page for Homes for the Homeless reads. Architect James Furzer has designed cheap-to-build transient homes for these people to help them keep safe.
The Homes for the Homeless stick to the sides of existing structures to dangle above streets. Meant only for temporary sheltering, the pods are similar to capsule rooms. There are no bathrooms or other amenities that might otherwise be too comfortable for the purpose they serve.
Because these pods are closed off and have roofs, the homeless will be able to have a safer place to stay instead of just on the ground.
