“small architecture BIG LANDSCAPES” @ The Gallery, College of Architecture and Planning, Ball State University

One billion leftover people—typically called squatters or self-builders or homeless (it’s a big category)–claim leftover spaces in cities and live in unauthorized dwellings made of scavenged, leftover materials. That’s 1 in 6 people worldwide. By 2025, two billion people globally, or 1 in 4, will be slum dwellers; by 2050, 3 billion people will live in slums or 1 out of every 3.

If you know just one of the one billion, you’ve been touched by her or his life, even if briefly and reluctantly.

Each of the works in this show is a beginning point for rethinking our attitudes about who and what we typically see as having no value while suggesting that our leftover human beings, building materials, and spaces can be seen–must be seen–as someone or something with potential.

Wes Janz is the show’s curator. He is a professor of architecture at Ball State University and founder of
