Even a static object changes with time and offers a sense of movement when exposed to the natural environment. These structures – small, eco-homes made of shipping containers – act as objects that allow elements to fluidly pass through, thus allowing an experience that is unified. They are a medium to re-evaluate how we look at nature and our relationship with it.
