According to Designboom.com, Arcgency and worldFLEXhome have teamed up together to create a pre-fab home that exceeds the international environmental standards for an “active home”, or environmentally sustainable home.  The 3-bedroom home is made from 3 containers and is adaptable to different environments including earth-quake prone areas.
