Dignity 3000 – Shelter in a Cart
Designboom competition entry to design a cart for homeless people that would act as a ‘mobile home’.
We propose that the technology for the shelter in a cart already exists and can be aquired cheaply ($199 in our estimate: less than an ipod). This system is made up from cheap, proven components that can be acted on now, and at minimal expense to the taxpayer or funder.
Being a human being means more than just survival. To flourish the human spirit requires more than just shelter:
art & literature
to give a minimum of dignity.
We hope that the humble items included in our shelter go some way to providing these needs, and offer opportunities that we think any shelter, in the broadest sense of the word, should provide.
