On any given day, there are 26 million people without homes. 15 million of those people lost their home due to a natural disaster such as a tornado or flood. While you may think it can never happen to you, 3.5 million people will experience homelessness at one point during each year.
With such a cry for affordable housing, a university in southern California has created a program that will be viable in three years, which estimates that it can complete a home in 18-19 hours with a crew of just four workers. Additionally, the Dutch architectural firm Dus is working on the “Canal house” which will be fully functional in three years, and is destined to be a design museum once complete.
With housing being such a huge need, finding new ways to build affordable, high-quality homes is critical. With over 828 million people living in slums, this technology may be part of the solution to getting affordable housing to everyone in need.
