Describe theory, concepts, and research you have performed. Describe the prior work, ideas and projects that influenced your design. What work informed this idea.

An inspiration for the final proposal we settled on is the CNET article  "AirBnb gives $2 million to help homeless youth in San Francisco". It informed us about the potential role that large companies could play in alleviating poverty, and provided grounding for the timeline imagined in the project proposal. 

For the distributed aspect of our design  [murmur] provided an example of an implemented project with a design context similar to our own. The project's lack of a central space contributed to the final decision to decentralize the initial memorial design. It works as a reflection of the oral history that specific to the city of Toronto, which is parallel to our project's goal of memorializing the information legacy of the homeless in San Francisco.
