castle in the air / billboard

castle in the air

When it is rainy or cold outside, where to spend the night is not our prime concern because we have our own houses to stay. However, the homeless tramps have to suffer the bad weather along the roads. Our design provides a place for the tramps to stay. Since the billboards are set along the highways, we make them temporary houses. With a roof on the top and a floor, the billboards become “the castle in the air” which has two separated rooms and a toilet inside.
