Kalkin’s Push Button House
Prefab meets green architecture meets the Jetsons in Adam Kalkin’s “Push Button House.” The “home,” built inside a shipping container and made completely from recycled materials, expands into a kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom and library—in 90 seconds. There does not appear to be a roof on this one, so you may want to wait for the next model.
Increasingly, shipping containers are being used, or rather re-used—by clever architects to construct low-cost habitable spaces. Such home and offices are “going like hotcakes” in Jamaica.
