In a bid to bolster the importance of sustainable development, General Motors is building a tiny urban homestead out of a recycled shipping container in Detroit. Along with the Michigan Urban Farming Initiative (MUFI), TAKD Design and Integrity Building Group, GM is transforming the container into an agricultural research center that a student caretaker will manage for one year. The tiny home will sit on an urban farm plot, which the student will be responsible for maintaining and harvesting.
