Your Post-Apocalyptic Future: Container Trucks Recycled Into Mobile Homes

Illustration for article titled Your Post-Apocalyptic Future: Container Trucks Recycled Into Mobile Homes

Whether the trucks were transporting oil, milk or some other sort of liquid, designer Aristide Antonas has conjured up a world where we would recycle the containers into apartments. The gallery below shows a post-apocalyptic world where we remain mobile.


As Antonas says, these keg apartments:

"...can be detached from their cars and can form more stable units for a certain period. A big circular window can be introduced in the vehicle's cylinder towards the car's side with the use of an enforced circular frame. This will give the form of a window open to the driver's section or to any chosen view if the keg stops in a particular way. The circular window can also serve as a projection screen surface if a special tissue is unfolded."

So, uh, why would you want to remain mobile? That's called a nomadic lifestyle and historically speaking it's never been that successful. Find somewhere safe and settle.

Plus a big heavy truck like that's going to be not much use without maintained roads.

Yeah, I'm far too practical.
