My favorite toy for the longest time was this Polly Pocket pencil case which folded out into Polly’s dream home. It got confiscated when I swallowed a Polly but no fear… I found the adult version : A shipping container transformer coined the Push Button House by architect/artist Adam Kalkin.

This is one of many “upcycling” and “prefab” architectural designs spawned from the green movement. Prefabrication promotes greener construction technologies and generates less waste compared to traditional land developments. Just take a look at these trailer park beauties:
