dc.description.abstract Homelessness is a global issue affecting thousands of lives a year. Through my travels to South America and working in Los Angeles this past summer, I witnessed an unprecedented number of men and women sleeping on the ground, on benches, or even on buses. I created and built at full scale an alternative, temporary sleeping shelter for the homeless, which is beautiful, personal, and restores dignity to the user by getting them off of the ground. I researched previous attempts at similar solutions and created my own building material for this project. After many tests with plastic bags, I created a sleeping structure made almost completely from found objects.
