    The kind of architecture could work in the area of Wynwood, maybe even Design District is someone was brave enough to suggest it.

    Certainly. It would easily be hurricane and corrosion resistant and cheaper than most building materials used. I wouldn’t be surprised to see someone use it in this region sometime in the next couple of years or so…

    They use freight containers like this in the Netherlands for cheap housing as they are in a big housing crises.
    No one commented on the nice bike lane shown along the road way.

    Finally! Someone noticed it!

    You are correct, these shipping containers can make cheap affordable housing…Notice they can even be well enough insulated to withstand Norway’s weather…
