Year:1958
Concrete boxes (containers) were to be used as housing. They were assembled leaving voids between them that could be used for outdoor functions or extra living space by the inhabitants.
The structure has an overall sunscreen on top.
The principle of stacked boxes was later demonstrated by Moshe Safdie at the Habitat 1967 in Montreal (Canada)
