Mai più senza un tetto
Never Homeless Again
A possible response to the need of the homeless for a roof over their heads: the prototype of an emergency shelter designed by Cherubino Gambardella in collaboration with the Fondazione PLART in Naples and the Museo MADRE, it is an initiative that becomes a symbol of integration, from the aesthetic viewpoint too, with the urban environment. Made of wood with a roof of plastic sheeting supported by a shaped iron framework, this small mobile structure consists of two symmetrical housing units with a slit in the middle for the services. The forms and materials of the prototype can be modified in relation to the shelter’s evolution towards a more or less permanent state, whether in isolation or grouped together.
