It’s Sad That It Has Come To This – 20 Examples of Anti-Homeless Architecture

Welcome to dystopia

We already live in a world where the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer, but this is discrimination on a whole new level!

It’s a tough old world and it’s only getting tougher and in the current economical climate more and more people are finding themselves on the streets. It can be a lonely, cold and uncertain existence out there and these people are discrimated against by people every day and now they have to face discrimation with hostile architecture too.

You may have noticed that the bench you were sitting on earlier while out shopping had metal bars strewn across the middle, yes they are quite handy as an arm rest, but in actual fact it’s to stop people sleeping there. You’ve probably also seen metal spikes on high window ledges to stop pigeons and other birds, but venture out at night and you can now see these spikes on footsteps, stairs and doorways of buildings in the inner cities to stop people!

It’s truly heartbreaking to deny somebody a place to rest when they have nowhere to go. Come on we can do better than this people!

Mumbai’s response to homelessness. Could you imagine if somebody accidently slipped onto those spikes!
