The inhabitants of Rivertown surely did their homework and caught wind of the artsy, high class version of lowdown living. (okay they definitely didn’t do any homework). But this is a great visual model of what stacks of shipping containers can look like as they are re-purposed into living quarters. I doubt the refugees in Rivertown would have access to beautiful 36″ circular windows and ikea flooring. But, I like the open doors to create balconies and entrances.

These kinetic sculptures could be a very cool reference for the birdhouses and also for elements of the Skynests. These could be like BodyMods for buildings, where the buildings themselves are almost alive and functioning on their own – with strange organic junk sculptures that do things like power elevator-like conveyor belts.
