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.
