One of the rooms that will resemble Panoramic Interests’ micro units, on Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2016 in San Francisco, Calif. Panoramic Interests wants to build micro-units to be used as supportive housing for the homeless. The stacked units are made of metal shipping container-type boxes. They are being called “Lego houses.”
San Francisco’s homelessness director wants them. A local developer is hot to build them, academics love them, and unions are open to the idea.
