Nomadic houses for the urban world - Fly high!

I was just browsing through Trendhunter´s site. http://www.trendhunter.com/ It´s filled with nice ideas - rather beautiful and observant moments in time than trends but still lovely. Spottings like "tattoos, supermodels, nude beauties" don´t feel so 'fresh' ehum, but "nomadic houses" is a cute trend. Also relevant in times of flood disasters here in Australia. http://www.trendhunter.com/trends/nomadic-houses

The story:
"Naked House, a prototype home designed by British architectural firm dRMM, can be transported in a standard container anywhere in the world and erected quickly using the container as a base. It can also be dismantled and repacked for reuse elsewhere.

Such nomadic houses can thus be used for emergency housing after a major catastrophe, even in flooded areas. The compact size of the nomadic houses allows them to be used in densely populated areas.

What’s more, the nomadic houses can be made in a sustainable, eco-friendly manner. The efficient jigsaw-puzzle approach to how nomadic houses are cut out make them affordable."
