Sourcing his materials from illegal street dumping and commerical waste, California-based artist Gregory Kloehn builds sturdy innovative mobile shelters for the homeless. His project called the "Homeless Homes Project" is a community driven initiative where collective ideas, good will and basic construction skills unite to repurpose the abundance of everyday gerbage into viable living spaces. Each structure is unique and all homes are mobile so that they can accomodate the nomadic lifestyle of the homeless residents. Kloehn says, "By using discarded materials we strive to diminish money's influence over the building process"
