MIT Study of mini-houses for the homeless

The MIT dissertation located at http://dusp.mit.edu/sites/dusp.mit.edu/files/attachments/news/mingoya_2015.pdf is one of the most complete resources available.

Catherine Mingoya wrote this for her dissertation in urban planning and examines in depth the mini-houses projects in Madison Wisconsin and Portland Oregon — two very different projects with unique histories and challenges.

While long (89 pages), it offers one of the most complete case studies available online.
