I'm totally amazed and becoming a little obsessed by the many applications people are finding for shipping containers. After personally visiting the MüvBox restaurants in Montreal last week, I kept thinking of the challenge host cities of mega sport events are facing in terms of lodging. I ended up discovering this really cool company called Snoozebox.
I'm sure these are the type of solutions a city like Rio de Janeiro should be exploring since we'll be hosting FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics.
It will be interesting to see what happens during the London games and its application to other events.
