Old city buses in Hawaii will be converted into homeless shelters that is if the architecture firm (Group 70 International) is successful. The old buses will be turned into living spaces for the homeless and for recreation rooms.
May Ry Kim of Group 70 International told Hawaii News that the design “is based on the premise that you could walk in to a hardware store, buy everything you need in one go and build everything with no trade skills,” so that it can be built by team of untrained volunteers.
LIFT, the volunteer group helping to execute the project hopes to construct one bus every weekend this summer. 70 buses and the entire material required for renovations will likely be donated.
