    5. Container City, London
    Developers Urban Space Management used a flexible, component-based container construction system to build this city in the London Docklands in 2001. The demand was so high for these homes made from 80% recycled materials that by 2002 they had built a second city right next to it. Rather than following the 1 container = 1 unit concept, architect Nicholas Lacey and partners and engineer Buro Happold used component pieces to create adaptable living and work spaces.

      That is incredibly ugly. Why not just build a warehouse with steel frame and prefabricated walls? Just as ugly but you could use it as a...well, a warehouse.

      I´ll admit those things are probably quite handy as movable medical facilities and destruction-zone housing.

      But to make a permanent house of that scale... You must be out of your mind.
