Shared urban micro-shelter is made out of salvaged doors and windows
In many cities, residual spaces like alleyways and abandoned parking lots are largely under-utilized and could be turned into productive gardens, affordable housing or even bike parking. French architect Stéphane Malka, known for this previous proposal for a facade made out of recycled pallets, has created this intriguing project for an open, common space for nomads to temporarily live in. Using a flexible scaffolding system, the structure consists entirely of recycled windows and doors, creating surface that also lights, ventilates and shelters.
