These plastic crate shelters were created by third year architecture students as an alternative for those who need something sturdy and easy to make. There are a few support columns, but other than that the shelters are made out of zip ties and crates exclusively.

As the race to weed out the concept of homelessness continues, we're seeing more and more inventive ways to procure shelter. This particular shelter gives the user natural light and wind while also being sturdy and easy enough to maintain.

Every crate can be used as a storage unit as well as a chair or table making for a customizable experience for the user. Their shelter can be filled with as many furnishings as they can fit and they'll always have room to store their belongings.
