Inspired by nature, we felt a need to develop an innovative solution for a better cost effective living solution which would help mankind and humanity.

Being responsible human beings we felt a need to develop this solution which would Revolutionize the way  we move  from one place to another.

Based on the human DNA and the animals like Snails and Turtles we developed a helical structure for our innovative building.

This is a very cost effective way of living for students, and people living under poverty. One of the most innovative socially responsible project of all times in FH WELS.



Inspiration

Human DNA.

The main inspiration for the structure of the city style frame came from the structure of human DNA which is a double helix. 




Hermit Crabs, Snails, Turtles, and Tortoises .


These animals carry their homes with them where ever it goes. Similarly, with this new structure people will have the ability to move their homes from structure to structure.






Cost:  The cost of renting an apartment or dormitory can be very expensive especially when there is limited space and high demand. Many people in the developing countries live below poverty hence dont have a lot of money to spend on housing.

Space: The amount of space on campus and in populated cities can be very limited because of high demand to live there.

Comfort: Some people never feel completely comfortable in their dorm or apartment because they were not able to choose the layout and make it their own.

Time: Moving all your belongings from one place to another can be very costly and time consuming, also building a structure with over 50 rooms’ completely interiorized takes a lot of time as well.




Create a small variety of containers that consumers can choose from, that are capable of locking into a specialized frame structure. The containers would be completely customizable, mobile, and a hundred percent owned by the consumer.
 The specialized frame structures that are designed to hold these containers could come in many different forms, depending on location and desired inhabitants. In large cities the structure would have a similar appearance as a sky skyscraper because space is limited, however in a place where space is not limited; there could be a more spread out structure. 
The structures can also be designed according to the social class the landlord wants to appeal too. The combination of these customizable, mobile containers and specialized frame structures could provide a cheap, comfortable form of living. 

Pros

• A variety of containers to choose from allowing consumer to choose the container best fit for their needs.
• Containers are completely customizable inside, allowing the consumer to make it their own.
• Entire Container can be transported resulting in easier more efficient moving experience, and belongings remain in the exact order as they were.
• Container is 100% owned by the consumer and therefore eliminates any concerns from the landlord of damage to the room, and gives consumer peace of mind that they will always have place to live.
• Provides minimal upkeep for landlords, because they only have to upkeep the specialized frame structure resulting in lower renting fees.
• Landlord can choose which specialized frame structure to build according to location and type of demand.
• Can be used in very poor countries to spark action towards providing civilized living.
• Has capability of turning into a worldwide concept of living allowing people to network and live all over the world at a much lower price.  

Conclusions
The container living concept has a lot of benefits that traditional apartment styled living does not. The idea that a consumer can customize their container however they like and then take this container with them to any place that has a specialized frame structure provides a lot of opportunity especially in developing countries as well as all major cities of the world. This concept could revolutionize student dorms, traveling, and accommodation as a whole forever.
