100 Shipping Containers Become Student Housing in France

Yet another proposal for putting students in boxes, this time in Le Havre by olgga Architects, "a multidisciplinary agency federated around 3 different personalities with different yet complimentary backgrounds and studies."
Designboom says it is "a student housing complex called 'crou' constructed from 100 recycled shipping containers."

I have never been convinced that shipping containers make comfortable housing; their interior width is a bit tight. But compared to a lot of student accommodation, this is pretty generous and comfortable looking.
