I love when I find truly inspiring design ideas. I am a big fan of the concept of using used cargo containers to create low carbon foot print houses that are equally beautiful as they are innovative. This phenomenon is called “cargotecture”-coined by HyBrid since 2004.

In the United States, there are over 700,000 cargo containers abandoned each year, according to Department of Transportation estimates. These modular, steel containers have limitless possibilities;

vacation homes

small carbon footprint homes

expo space

construction office

student housing

festival housing

movable restroom

…”box office” building.

12-unit, 32 container office.
