And yet another very cool project that blends perfectly industrial design with architecture in goals to reduce homelessness with one the many most densely populated cities in the World with 27,000 people living per square mile. The folks at Framlab came up with a concept that would use the framework that already exists in the city - scaffolding. Built hexagon-shaped housing modules that would be designed to connect to the scaffolding structure to create a second, active layer on top of the empty wall. It's a very interesting approach, what do you think?
Framlab is a creative agency with offices in Oslo and New York City, they would focus their work into product-system design, urbanism, and architecture. As I quote, their motto is: "Fueled by technology and optimism, we create objects and spaces for better futures."
Homed is a project that sets out to eradicate homelessness in New York City, by utilizing idle building facades, scaffolding, and 3D-printed spatial modules.
