Cardborigami plans to raise awareness and end social injustices through good design.
Founded in 2007 by Tina Hovsepian while she was a student at the USC School of Architecture, Cardborigami transforms 4’ x 7’ pieces of cardboard into portable housing solutions for the homeless. In a recent recent event at the Callison Terrace in Santa Monica, 60 flat sheets of cardboard were transformed into 10 Cardborigami shelters by 30 volunteers. Cardborigami’s next step is to distribute these shelters through their partnering organizations in Los Angeles’ Skid Row area.
