This is a guest post from Antonina of OpenBuildings & sister site www.clippings.com! Below you will see thematic selections of inspirational architecture & design, which might help you start your very own design project and get matched with design professionals.
Much more than a matter of technological growth, the ever-growing interest in the concept of mobile structures results from the fact it addresses a lot of the latest social issues related to migration, social housing, recycling, post-disaster shelters, the optimal use of space in overcrowded cities. Floating homes – you’ll find them on lakes, rivers and major bodies of water. Think 1 to 3 bedrooms, a great view, and no grass to cut, no neighbours either. Just pick up and move.
