Cardboard shelters for the homeless aren't exactly the newest concepts on the block (that's what refrigerator boxes are for, right?), but NYU grad student Carolina Pino's thesis project, the collapsibleShell House (with embedded radio transmitter), is a practical DIY project that provides a simple and bare-bones, yet attractive and effective barrier against the elements and others. She's even posted instructions online so that the authorship dissolves in order for the project to evolve via users.
Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
