GenslerA rendering of tiny homes for the homeless in San Jose, California. Although the total number of homeless Americans has slowly decreased over the past decade, homelessness has risen in large cities across the country. Certain spots in these areas are often dubbed “tent cities,” where it’s common for the homeless to live in encampments under highways or parks. In San Jose, California, officials are temporarily addressing the city’s homeless epidemic with tiny homes. This week, they unveiled two designs for the homes, created pro-bono by Gensler, the world’s largest architecture firm. The first home, an 80-square-foot design, has a fold-down bed, a locking door, and storage shelves.
