Lars Behrendt’s Project Lotto Turm Constructs Skyscraper Using 55 Shipping Containers

Lars Behrendt has put together a model of a skyscraper that uses 55 shipping containers stacked on top of each other.  This project is called the Lotto Turm and it is a plan to revamp the Oesterreichischer Platz.  The Oesterreichischer Platz is a parking spot in the southern part of Germany.

The shipping container structure will be split into two parts.  The first part will be a courtyard area that is isolated from traffic and noise.  And the other part will be a high-rise tower that has stairs which can go all the way to the top.  One of the containers will be purely a swimming pool.
