Houslets lets anyone reinvent and reshape urban spaces with low-cost, mobile, modular live/work units. We help people envision and implement low-cost housing, shelter, event, or work spaces, using new methods of low-skill and DIY fabrication, "lean urbanism" approaches, and rapid prototype-iterate methods. We also work with municipalities to open up urban "pink zones" for houslets and other exploratory urbanism.
