It may seem like a strange idea to use stacks of shipping containers as hotel rooms or temporary housing, but this isn’t an idea conceived for the luxury set.
Hong Kong based OVA Studio came up with the idea of using modular containers as a quick and easy way to provide shelter for people displaced by natural disasters, for use as mobile hospital units, offices, basically whenever a situation arises where a lot of people need some temporary housing.
The recycled shipping containers are slotted together to create a multi-level structure OVA calls the Hive-Inn, which can grow or decrease in size as needed and is ready at a moment's notice.
This project reminds me of the trailer park "stacks" which are home to the main character in the Ernest Cline novel Ready Player One.
