With Power Smart Month in British Columbia, Canada, Smak Shipping Container Condos have moved into town. Housing strikingly similar studio apartments, these cargo crate cribs create a living fishbowl for one actor carrying on within each studio.

The Smak Shipping Container Condos do more than promote the eco-friendly trend of sustainable structures, but the publicity stunt is an efficiency experiment built to monitor the energy consumption of dwellings by their inhabitants, considering settings of remarkable likeness.

Proving that one home is almost six times more wasteful than the other, the exhibit shows the public just how much of a difference each citizen can make to live more sustainably.
