Portable Flat-Pack Homes

This Experimental Building Can Be Moved Anywhere in the World

— October 7, 2015 — Art & Design
Jeff Wilson recently designed an experimental building that can be moved anywhere in the world. Wilson is well known for the time he spent living in a dumpster in Austin, Texas. Although Wilson eventually grew tired of his dumpster home, the project inspired him to create a different type of mico-home for the modern consumer.

'Kasita' is a flat-packed home that can be moved anywhere in the world. The experimental building consists of several micro-apartments that can be individually moved and replaced at any time. The structure boasts a durable metal frame that allows the units to be configured in different ways. Each unit is only about 1,000 square feet, which is ideal for dense urban environments. The portable nature of the building also means that consumers can move their home anywhere in the world simply by placing a request through the Kasita app.

The mobile apartments are largely intended for consumers who want to live in urban areas, but may not have the income to afford to do so.
Trend Themes
1. Flat-pack Homes - Flat-pack homes offer a disruptive innovation opportunity in the housing industry by providing a portable and affordable alternative for urban dwellers.
2. Modular Living Spaces - Modular living spaces offer a disruptive innovation opportunity in the real estate industry by providing a flexible alternative for urban consumers who value mobility and customization.
3. On-demand Housing - On-demand housing offers a disruptive innovation opportunity in the sharing economy industry by enabling consumers to book and move their homes like they would with a ride-sharing service.
Industry Implications
1. Housing - The housing industry could benefit from flat-pack homes as a solution to affordable housing crisis and space constraints in urban areas.
2. Real Estate - The real estate industry could benefit from modular living spaces as a way to increase inventory and cater to the unique needs of urban consumers.
3. Sharing Economy - The sharing economy industry could benefit from on-demand housing by offering a new type of rental service that blurs the line between homeownership and temporary accommodation.
