PRIVATE SPACE / Shelter for the homeless

PRIVATE SPACE
PRIVATE SPACE

The homeless make up about 5% of the world's population. Most of them sleep in the open streets at night. When street lights go out at night, they lose light. PRIVATE SPACE is a simple home for the homeless, which is placed in the corner. In the daytime, it is rotated and folded to reduce the floor area. At night, it rotates and falls to form a fan-shaped private space. Solar panels are mounted on top and store energy during the day to provide light and warmth to the homeless at night.
