Alternative Trailer Parks

click on the image to see it larger
Hamburg Germany has over 10,000 people living in alternative trailer parks which are essentially improvised communes of students, apprentices, musicians, actors, tai chi teachers, gardeners, punks, and hippies who define themselves as a community through their mode of living in circus wagons, lorries, and busses in the middle of the city. The interiors are catalogued in a beautiful book called Bauwagen|Mobile Squatters. I love seeing how they make use of such tiny spaces.

Yes, how much stuff do you think we can fit in our tiny space?

Maybe our ticket to beating the system is to start our own trailer park.
