Now Playing Tracks

“My younger sister died when I was seven. I remember my mom asking if I’d seen her, and we searched the whole house, and discovered her beneath some hurricane shutters. We think that she climbed up on them to play, and they fell down on her. My strongest memory from that day is these two young girls, holding open our front door when the paramedics arrived. I can see them clearly in my memory, but I don’t know who they are. I may have just invented them, but I like to think that they were angels.”

Billboard Homes for the Homeless

Project Gregory is a non profit effort that converts existing billboard structures into affordable housing units. Maintenance costs, skills, and resources are covered through funds raised by the advert space and partner reciprocity.The Republic of Slovakian project utilises the electricity used to keep the billboard lit at night to power the home’s interior.

This project is open source and Project Gregory encourages all cities in all countries to construct new, innovative designs and involve as  many companies as possible to help make a difference.

Second time we’ve featured this, but it’s such an interesting idea. This apartment looks better than mine!
