1OK HOUSES

10000 houses was created as part of the Austin Futures Fair, which aimed to connect the city's under-30 population to the Imagine Austin 30yr Comprehensive Plan.  The window installation brought a series of startling housing statistics to life.  For example, Austin needs to build 10000 houses a year for the next 30 years to keep up with the growing population.  To help visualize this, 10000 miniature house profiles were cut from the larger house forms and piled along the storefront window.
