Mobile roofing systems

I find the fact that the homeless are appearing in our "roofless" photo feed (on the right) quite interesting. It immediately brought to mind the homeless vehicle projects of my former art professor Krzystof Wodiczko.

How can our roofless project benefit the homeless? How can its rooflessness contribute to their "mobile conditions"....Can we create a mobile roofing system in place of a traditional roof? What if the roof was still put in...but in mobile capacities? A roof that reassembled in the evening or during dinnertimes...dispersed in the morning.

...I'm a student of Krzystof, what can I say? :)
