Summary
"Give Me Shelter provides an in-depth look at how design can bridge the gap in services, to speed up the process of getting people off the streets and into housing. In 2015, Los Angeles declared a state of emergency on homelessness. Since then, homelessness has increased by nearly 30 percent, underscoring how our homeless epidemic is more than a humanitarian crisis -- it is a call for action. Give Me Shelter tells the story of eleven fourth-year architecture students and their two instructors' journey through the world of homelessness as they tackle real-world design solutions for emergency stabilization housing. From nomadic and temporary shelters to the city-supported and award winning Homes for Hope, Give Me Shelter follows the MADWORKSHOP Homeless Studio and their designs from the encampments all the way to City Hall. Give Me Shelter is the culminating effort of the MADWORKSHOP Homeless Studio, in collaboration with the USC School of Architecture and course work that took place during a 15 week semester in the Fall of 2016. The Homeless Studio project was funded by MADWORKSHOP, a foundation established by noted architect David C. Martin and Mary Klaus Martin to enhance the real-world learning experiences of design and fabrication. Like the course it outlines, this publication stands as a call to action within both the academic and professional fields of architecture as well as the general public. Documenting the unprecedented collaboration between the studio, community advocates, service providers, City Hall, and the homeless themselves, Give Me Shelter reminds the reader that it doesn't take a lot to do a lot. The result of the Homeless Studio culminates in an ongoing collaboration with the city of Los Angeles to build the first 30-bed modular community of Homes for Hope by 2018"--
