Concrete Canvas

Almost a year ago, Jeremy noted the development of "concrete canvas," a semi-permanent shelter in a bag developed by a couple of grad students at Royal College of Art in London. At the time, all they had come up with was a plan and a prototype -- they didn't even have a website.

Fast forward to the present: Concrete Canvas is now operational, at least as a website. They're still seeking funding for production, something that should be greatly helped by their being given the Saatchi & Saatchi Award for World Changing Ideas earlier this month.

This is really a brilliant idea, and we're happy to see it get the recognition it deserves.
