A group of students and graduates from the Architectural Association school in London have produced a kit that can help turn unused spaces into public amenities. This bright yellow awning is slung from telegraph poles and buildings using cables and can be erected in just four hours! These kits is being featured at a current exhibition at the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. Called Design For The Other 90%, the exhibition features designs that improve the lives of the world’s poor. Runs from 4 May to 27 September 2007.
