The Urbankit shelter was not designed with the goal of solving the growing problem of homelessness in Europe and North America, but rather to meet the immediate needs of people on the streets while more serious solutions and measures are ideally being discussed. These little DIY abodes confront problems such as where a person is going to sleep tonight, offering the most rudimentary roof over someone's head.
Alessandro di Prisco's concept is much more realistic than many that have been intended to supplement the situation; it's low-cost and its simple to set up. The cardboard box cabin has been printed with pictorial instructions on how to assemble it, as well as the logo of a company that sponsored that Urbankit.
