Shipping Container City

There's an entire city of made out of recycled shipping containers which recently sprang up about two hours outside of Mexico City. Along with a few residential apartments, the eco-friendly Container City houses restaurants, bars, shops, art galleries, and an open public area with ping pong tables. I want to live there! (Note: There’s also a Container City in London. As far as I can tell, they’re similar, but unrelated.) More images after the jump.

A clip from History Channel’s Modern Marvels about London’s Container City:
