    I think it should be noted that this is not cardboard, it is corrugated cardboard. Without the layer of corrugation in between, the paperboard would not have the strength needed to sustain these structures.

  2. When and where was/is this exhibit? An article about it would be helpful. Thanks.

  3. keep design simple. THIS is the necessity. for every man. a homeless man…

  4. i say simple design is needed. for the homeless.
