Living in Container City

“Micro” living isn’t just about accommodating the expected population growth in cities around the globe. It also takes on environmental issues. The Container City developments in London provide a working example. Constructed of used shipping containers, Container City I and II are the work of Urban Space Management Ltd., in London. To date the company had used the technique in classrooms, office space, sports halls, nurseries, community centers, artist studios, retail space, live / work space, sound recording studios and a medical practice.
