Jagne Faltmilton -- a Swedish architecture firm -- presented an interesting concept for a competition to design a master plan for Andalsnes, Norway. What sets their boxy designs apart from the rest is that they are able to move around!

The concept that Jagne Faltmilton proposed includes rolling buildings that utlize existing rail roads. Along with housing, a rolling hotel, public bath and even a concert hall was included.

Implications - Portability is a key feature that consumers are always looking for within new products. The ability for a company to promote products that are easily transported -- like these moveable city designs -- show a recognition of the consumer desire to be on the go.
