Old billboards used to build homes in Thailand

The Other Side campaign modified road-side advertisements to be re-purposed as walls for small shelters.

Home Pro used their road-side advertisements as a way to help poor people construct makeshift housing. The project was conceived by BBDO Bangkok, a Taiwanese advertising agency that produced sturdy boards with wall paper and a home feature on the back side of the ads.

Local homeless families used the modified ads as building materials to construct small shelters. Features like wallpaper, a mirror, mini window, shelving, mini lamps and hanging rods gave the small shelters a brighter and more homey appeal.  Check out the video below for more information.
