Architect’s homeless address idea among Designs of the Year finalists

A proxy address system, which its UK architect creator hopes will help alleviate the problems of the homeless, is among the nominations for the Beazley Designs of the Year, awarded by the Design Museum

Chris Hildrey’s ground-breaking database – a system matching up homeless people with addresses of empty properties – has been shortlisted against an eclectic mix of innovations. The 76 finalists range from the world’s first hands-free breast pump to Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s extendable Shed building in New York.
