Tens of thousands of people are currently living on LA’s streets. Last November voters passed Measure HHH — to direct $1.3 billion to build more permanent supporting housing in LA County. Last week they passed Measure H, to provide the supportive services. But going from passing a measure to welcoming people into their new home is a long and laborious process. That’s why the Martin Architecture and Design Workshop (MADWORKSHOP) and USC’s School of Architecture teamed up with Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission, a housing and homeless service provider in the San Fernando Valley, to design modular, temporary structures for the homeless.
