  • Living unit - for the Urban Nomad

  • 7,4 million live in London

    40 % of new dwellings to be build onempty sites

    It is estimated that the number of inhabitants in London will increase with 810,000 by 2016

    There are 3,100,000 dwellings in London

    500,000 new dwellings to be build withinthe next 10 years. it is estimated that the number single dwellings is 290.000

    What if we could meet the need earlier and use the existing empty sites now

    ... and create temporary dwellings for temporary tenants

    We could prefabricate a 30 foot ISO con-tainer complete with interior, that could be placed and plugged in on an empty site. When building work would start on the site the mobile dwellings could be moved to a different site.
