accommodating poverty

Sean Godsell an amazing architect designer, has found a clever solution for a humane cause. Designing emergency shelters for the displaced or homeless people in urban environments. The design converts into an emergency overnight accommodation. The bench lifts to reveal a woven steel mattress and the advertising hoarding is modified to act as a dispenser of blankets, food, and water. It also acts as a small gallery space where art can be exhibited. The shelter has the potential to be solar powered and its glass roof and back double as a digital projection screen.

The first prototype is located in Melbourne, Australia
