Bike & Build

Why am I biking across the country?

 
That complex is Pruitt-Igoe, one of the most infamous housing complexes in history.  Designed by Minoru Yamasaki (also the designer of the WTC) and hailed as visionary in the 1950s, by 1972 when it was demolished, it stood 60% empty, ravaged by vandals and drug dealers.
 
I am biking across the country with Bike and Build to give people a real place to live- a real home, as opposed to space in a filing cabinet for poor people.
