These are images of 'The Lotto Turm,' an incredible tower designed with 55 shipping containers stacked on each other. The location is right in the center of Stuttgart, Germany, in an unused square called Oesterreichischer Platz.

The tower has been invented and drawn by architect and designer Lars Behrendt, who wanted to bring life to, and update, this space that hadn't been used for nearly 40 years.

What a lovely and sociable construction he has made.

Apparently The Lotto Turm would be a very mixed-use-development, a leisure fun spot with lots of gardens and terraces, residential housing, office spaces and a swimming pool. Its name comes from the fact that the city's winning lottery numbers would be announced from the rooftop.

Most importantly, the public and tourist could venture all the way to the top of the tower to enjoy the view.
