Tent City Shelter

Entered into: The Community Prize

Permanent shelter provided to the homeless as an alternative to the current temporary solution of tent city. Pallets offer portability and easy assembly as the main building component. The front face unfolds to provide an extended covered space where a fire could be built and protected in foul weather. This is an inexpensive solution to providing the homeless with shelter and a sense of permanence.
