Tent Cities—Tiny Houses—TEDx

I wanted to share a couple recent and relevant TEDx presenations that are a must see if you're interested in Tent City Urbanism.

The first is by Dan Bryant, our executive director at SquareOne Villages, explaining the need for truly affordable housing solutions, and introducing Emerald Village as a model for doing just that.

The second is by Luca Clemente of OM Build, which talks about the relationships developed between the unhoused and the housed during Madison, Wisconsin's Occupy Camp, and the collaborative development that ensued, called OM Village.

Very interesting that both of these efforts emerged in the aftermath of a local Occupy camp, and always exciting as the body of work on this topic continues to grow.

Feel free to add your reactions to these presentations below.
