Showing the audience how some less fortunate people are forced to live in makeshift homing solutions around the world, Iwan Baan's architecture photo series is fascinating and utterly shocking.

The photographer captures these unexpected living arrangements in his poignant architecture photo series, which clearly portrays how human resilience is something to be respected.

Living in places like abandoned buildings, dirty lagoons and underground nooks, these people around the globe and their homes are not determined by the physical space, but what they do with it and who lives with them.

Even though the images show unlivable spaces to us, these people have learned to make do and to be content with what they have -- for example a young couple decorates their house with wedding pictures to give it some style in Egypt’s Zabaleen (garbage) district.
