Camper Shell in San Francisco

Well, um…

Undoubtedly faux (polyurethane) brick siding. They do look pretty real, but if they were, the springs would be crushed and tires blown out. Liberal application of polyurethane foam to seal cracks.

Average rent for apartments in SF dropped almost $1,000 in the last year, but still they’re about $3100 per month.

  1. what a great illusion, and exact irony!
    really, buildings are getting more and more unreal by using cheap materials, concrete and foam.
    At the same time prices increase like bubblegum bubbles 🙂
    fantastic plastic!
