Sleeping Pod Designs Unveiling says
Over a dozen architecture, design, and activist teams have stepped forward to create various designs for sleeping pods, or quick-easy-and cheaply built shelter.

All the teams are currently building prototypes of their designs and for this event the Village Coalition and Partners On Dwelling (POD) Initiative will be sharing poster boards of all the designs that include instructions, motivations, and team information. We will have presenters to speak on the sleeping pod building process and where we will go from here, including an exhibition of the completed pods on Dec. 9th-11th.

Please join us in the City Hall Atrium on the north side. The upcoming weekend we will exhibit the built pods in the North Park Blocks at NW Glisan and 8th. Event page here:
