Shipping Container-Inspired Homebox is a Tiny, Movable 3-Story Vertical Home

is a radical concept inspired by cargotecture that involves literally flipping a shipping container on its side. Professor Han Slawik of the University of Hanover loves the concept of building with shipping containers, but thinks they have a limited potential and are costly to modify or repair.

The result is a three-story house with a tiny footprint that can be moved with the same transport system of shipping containers and be used as emergency, temporary or permanent housing.
