designboom social awareness award 2006
---
the non-profit design competition under the title
‘shelter in a cart’ has been very successful.
4247 designers and / or organizations from 95 countries
have participated.

many more of you deserved to be chosen.
the jury made its selections, and from the combination of
choices the 5 winner and runners-up were chosen.

homelessness is a complex issue encompassing multiple
facets of society. the theme (and the jury decision) caused
much controversy and the here presented 130 variations on
the theme are already widely discussed across many sites.
it is no surprise to us that we are receiving comments suggesting
that we are doing something superficial and self-satisfying,
but in answer to that, we say that design is the tool we know best,
so we will use it to bring social discussion to our audience.
the massive participation rate made it clear that there is a
growing awareness of the homeless issue.

designboom social awareness award 2006

design a cart that can provide shelter and storage.

urban homeless use carts to carry their possessions and to
collect goods (like bottles, cardboard, etc.) that they then return
to various recyclers in exchange for cash. this provides a small
and valuable income. it is essential that your cart design not only
accommodates all these functions but that it is affordable
(for production and for private parties or charity organisations
who wish to donate them).
