Inflatable Architecture

Check this genius out: Michael Rakowitz.

In this project, paraSITE, he designed portable housing that could be inflated easily by attaching onto the exhaust from building heating vents. A series of the houses were designed to meet different folk's needs & wants. The project directly tackles issues of gentrification, race, class & public space.

This is a really great example of Social Practice.
