In response to the Los Angeles county homeless crisis, where over 50,000 people are currently unsheltered, Cube Collective was envisioned as an immediate solution to temporary housing. As the City of Los Angeles constructs permanent supportive housing for the homeless (which is expected to come online within the next 15 years), Cube Collective provides shelter in the interim.
The modular, lightweight units come equipped with an operable door and window, twin-XL-sized Murphy bed, built-in lighting, ample storage, and a fold-out table. As many as eight closed units can fit on the bed of a standard 18-wheeler. Each cube can be leveled to handle a variety of terrain and includes a hook-up that connects to the city grid for power.
Completed at Gensler - Los Angeles during Summer 2017.
