As cities swell, the cost of living rises. The demand for desirable urban space has driven designers to look for creative solutions off the beaten path.

Designed and developed by a group of students, alumni, professors and staff from the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD), SCADPad is a pop-up housing facility built in an underused parking garage in Atlanta. Each SCADpad provides 135 square feet of living space and a panoramic view into downtown Atlanta. The project is a response to the challenge of designing suitable and efficient housing given the growing population in cities around the globe.

Pop Up Housing – AirClad Black House Inflatable Housing 1

The Black House by AirClad is a pop-up housing structure that was originally designed for a private garden exhibition. The house is set on a 4 meter by 3 meter area with a maximum height of 4 meters. The Black House has an integral flooring system made of eco recoiled wood and plastic. The structure basically looks like a fancy inflatable house that looks quite comfortable. Though the company designed the Black House for a private exhibition, AirClad sees it as ideal for a variety of functions, such as as a home office, play room, garden room, pool house, among others. It may not be exclusively livable, but for temporary use or additional living space, it’s just the ticket.

The Dumpster Project is an ongoing experiment that aims to transform a garbage dumpster into a small sustainable house and interactive teaching lab. The project team, based in Huston-Tillotson University in Austin, Texas, has already turned a 33 square foot dumpster into a living space and officially launched it in 2014. A member of the team, Dr. Jeff Wilson, lived in the Dumpster for a year as part of the project. The project also invites educators and creatives to experience living in the Dumpster through the Dumpster Project Home School Residency Program.

Pop-Up Urban Housing – Tents Become Temporary Artists Residences

Pop Up Housing – Stealth Shelters Tent Houses in Paris by Malka Architecture 1

A-KAMP47 by French architect Stéphane Malka consists of 23 vinyl tents installed along a railway viaduct wall in Marseille. The umbrella-shaped tents are insulated with isothermal blankets and create “stealth” spaces that can be used as temporary shelter by “urban campers” or homeless people. All but one of the tents can fit two people. A-KAMP47 is somewhat of a commentary on the issue of housing, and the project tows the line between private and public property because the tents are installed on the wall and not on the ground.
