Living in a container is becoming something less original and increasingly necessary due to the lack of construction land. This kind of architecture encapsulates a complete life philosophy. It's essentially how to pay less for occupy-ing the same space and make housing more accessible always respecting environmental criteria. Here you will find a selection of the latest creations with 'cargo boxes' designed by architect studios worldwide, starting from a small room for guests, to a residential complex and even shelters, shops and apartment buildings. Given the success of building at such a low cost, many people opt for modular homes, whether in a big city like São Paulo or uninhabited places like Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.
