A "statement" that's a really brilliant idea!

INDEX: - PARASITE: NEW YORK CITY VARIANT (2000-PRESENT): "paraSITE is an ongoing project that consists of the construction and distribution of custom-built inflatable shelters for homeless people that attach to the exterior ventilation ports on buildings during the winter. The warm air exhausted from the building's HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system simultaneously inflates and heats the double membrane structures."

The article describes how these "tents" (which actually aren't tents) are an anti-establishment statement, which is fine... but they're just a darn good idea! This is great environmentalism! Use waste heat to keep people from freezing to death -- good plan!
