Love the idea and the flexible enthusiasm of the inhabitants. Too bad this piece plays out like an infomercial with every single interior picture using an excessively wide "fish eye" wide angle lense. It grossly exaggerates the look and feel of spaciousness in these photographs. Particularly with the appearance of rounded ceilings. What complete nonsense. These boxes are tight in space and should be more accurately depicted for what they really are - a highly constrained choice but a choice nonetheless.
@Phillippe Paradis in place of your word "choice" I believe a more apt descriptor is "option." In the ever increasing overcrowding of our cities, shipping containers - no matter the constraints as you perceive them - afford viable options. Before their introduction there were no options, leaving little if any "choice".
@Steven Jenkins @Phillippe Paradis As far as I know Amsterdam (like most Euro cities) isn't so overcrowded that they "need" to resort to shipping containers. They look fun, ok for 6 months while you find something else, or for a semester, but certainly not a long term option, let alone a housing solution. They are much smaller than they're being made to look here. The only way to photograph them is with a fisheye.
