2.5D Tabernacle / Shelter

There’re many ads for new buildings, wall paintings and graffiti posted or painted on walls in our cities, which depict happy scenes of city life for rich people. When the upper-class live in high-rises or villas, the poor sleep on the streets, suffering from exposure to cold weather. 2.5D Tabernacle is a relief-style wall painting or ads, by the way of extruding, the 2D patterns could be transformed into 3D honeycomb paperboard house, making the wall painting or ads no longer just the visual landscape of the city and not only play the role of advertising or decoration, but provide the basic shelter for the homeless or beggars.
