Pope Francis plans to build showers for the homeless

Pope Francis reportedly is working on plans to build showers for homeless men and women in Vatican City, his latest move to change the public’s expectations of the Catholic Church and to ease some residents’ suffering.
The pope’s chief alms-giver, Monsignor Konrad Krajewski, told The Associated Press that three showers will be installed in the public restrooms in St. Peter’s Square, the plaza directly in front of St. Peter’s Basilica, to help individuals who are homeless. The idea allegedly stemmed from Krajewski’s encounter with a homeless man who declined the charity provider’s offer to celebrate his 50th birthday at a restaurant because of his odor.

Shape laying bricks actually was little structure element which has the general arrangement and form of the building containers. Pavilion typesetting grid, expressed in continuous visual structure, and expression of the roof Hbmna engineering, grid happens in parallel to each other.
These two principles together with the environment of the Pavilion (location of trees), served in the idea that we wanted to express planning is private. Grid and cover created by the arrangement does not get very walls of growing taller ones only partial closure of the building, it manages to convey in serving the private experience without barriers and without concealment.
