The Steampunk Urban Landscape : modular homes are the future

   The Well Modulated Community of the Future

Here is a sample of simple forms of Modular Home that will fit into a Future Urban Cityscape or a Post apocalyptic Landscape. 
We can utilize the developments to come in modern times to build homes for a time yet to come. Articles from our past can also be re-used to make modular homes in the future.

 - or even in the here and now

A Modular Home is a beautiful thing in every way. They are constructed from pre fabricated units, easily relocated to any location on land or sea. They  click together & stick together.
 they will  adapt to a social utopia - or a dark dystopia

  1. Modular homes can be architectural masterpieces; the Futuro subdivision looks like an alien invasion, nevertheless, it's an ideal way for an extended family to live in close proximity while retaining their privacy. The interiors appear quite roomy. The transportable homes could come in handy as well; I wonder if they can park in campgrounds?

  2. Recycling industrial containers into homes is a great way to protect the environment and provide affordable housing to people who otherwise would be homeless. Many communities are turning to this type of housing as a quick solution for people such as homeless veterans. The person gets a home and the container gets turned into something useful and beautiful instead of discarded.
