April 2003 Earthquake Shack

Location: San Francisco, California
Status: Saved!

This small structure is one of more than 5,000 "refugee shacks" built to house those left homeless by the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Today, only 30 remain. This particular shack is now being restored by the Oakland-based Fifth Avenue Institute, a nonprofit arts organization, which plans to use it as an artist's studio.
