Shipping containers in Copenhagen are used for student housing

We all know that education is becoming less and less affordable and housing is one of the big costs faced by students. This is especially true for England. A company called Urban Rigger, is now using shipping containers stacked on a floating base to create low-cost studio apartments for students. Using shipping containers the accommodation can be configured in lots of different ways. The roofs of the shipping containers are not wasted space, for example, and can be used for terraces, gardens and solar panelling. Windows and doors are punched out of the corrugated frames and they can connect to glazed greenhouses. Could this solve the student housing crises? For more information please click here.
