Shipping containers have been used to make interesting homes for some time, but this spiky white cluster of containers jutting out of the California desert will be quite a sight to behold upon completion.
Set to rise in the desert outside of Joshua Tree, California, this 2,153-square-foot house is the work of London designer James Whitaker, who created the spiky, sea anemone-reminiscent home for a film producer and his wife as the Los Angeles couple’s vacation home.

(Whitaker once worked with Arad, so this inclusion is likely a nod at that.) We’ll be watching closely as work progresses, but you can take a look around at the renderings below.
