15 Inhumane Ways Cities Are Preventing The Homeless From Sleeping In Public Places
You’ve Got To Be The Worst Kind Of Heartless Twat If You Can Go Around Slashing Homeless People’s Tents
Let us introduce you to something called “hostile architecture” – a design strategy that aims to manipulate peoples’ behavior through certain design elements. One of the most widely used elements of hostile architecture is the so-called “anti-homeless spikes” – metal or stone studs on ledges and steps that are embedded to prevent the homeless from sleeping there.
If you live in a big city, you can probably spot a few examples of it yourself – although sometimes cities try to mask them as “art installations”. You’d think that the money wasted on all those hostile design elements could be spent on actually solving the homelessness problem – but apparently spiky ledges and anti-homeless benches sound like a better idea.
