Low income housing made by stylish shipping container apartments

Cheap, durable, and stylish shipping containers are the solution to the problem.
Many urban developers have heard of the shipping container home, but still making full fledged homes out of containers is still costly.

For this project to work, costs for the occupants must... more »

Encouraging Affordable Housing

While building more houses creates more jobs and is awesome, we can further encourage more housing spaces by encouraging people to rent or share their spaces. We can be inspired by LA’s encourageable Share Pods system and create places like those for individuals or encourage others to rent their homes for cheap.

Montreal, look how we’ve learned from you and what we’ve become.

Calgary is perceived by many as a boring, business, conservative town. A city where there’s no much to do. However, Cowtown has one of the most educated, multicultural and friendly populace in Canada, and it is surrounded by stunning natural spaces. If only Calgary were a little different…
This city, in my view, needs ubiquitous art, ongoing events that uses technology to AMAZE people, that make them want to stay and... more »

Healthy food Kiosks at all C Train stations

I am among that hundreds of C train travellers who have money but no time to stop at a cafeteria and buy something to eat as we all are in rush and we don't want to get late.

Cheers for our City... more »
