Architectures of the unhoused

Fragile constructions, exploiting suitable angles in urban space. Makeshift protection against the weather. Without alternative. Temporary and less temporary. Eviction futile.
Homelessness is spreading, in the middle of Madrid as well as in other large cities. It is a reflection of the growing inequality in our society. Resources are distributed extremely unevenly. Housing, a human right, is lacking everywhere. In the absence of social solutions, there often seems to be only individual remedies. People are forced to become creative. Temporary solutions characterize urban reality.

Architectures of homelessness.
A documentation.
Work in Progress.

I have been awarded at the European Architecture Photography Award 2023 on the Topic Provisorium – Stopgap
for my series makeshift life on the subject of architectures of homelessness in Madrid, Spain.
