Hammock Shelter / Social Design

Hammock Shelter

A dignified shelter for homeless people brought by social design. Excluded from society, homeless people suffer from biased behaviors and are treated like they didn’t have the right to be anywhere. This group of people also confront great difficulty to find shelter, while the official resources are insufficient. Lacking options, the solution was to create an artifact that could help improving the following aspects: to shelter, dignify and aware, while aiming in dignifying the situation of these people, helping them dealing or leaving the situation they’re facing, also serving as a reference in social design.
