A little over a month ago, James Furzer of Spatial Design Architects won the 6th Annual Space for New VisionsA competition, and he’s wasting little time getting started on his project to develop a homeless shelter composed of modular pods.

Furzer has begun his Indiegogo campaign for his “Homes for the Homeless” project, with proposes a series of modular pods which attach to existing building.  The purpose is to provide safe spaces for a night’s rest for the homeless.  Furzer hopes to extend this project beyond only habitation, and hopes to change the way the public sees homelessness.  For perspective, in London there are usually over 750 homeless people out-and-about on any given night.
