This looked really intriguing. They're stackable 100-square-foot living spaces that are, apparently, easily deployable. They seem adapted to singles or to student dorms. Or even as part of a social program for the habitually homeless, i.e. as an ownership-oriented alternative to shelters. A good idea for Toronto, if managed properly? Where would they fit?

Not sure if it is the most practical - cylinders aren't exactly the most volume efficient form for one, and I can't imagine how insulation will fit in our climate for a project like this.

So, just change the shape to be rectilinear and space efficiency goes to max.

It might not be the worst idea to house homeless people but where would we stack them? We're running out of centrally located surface car parks.

Also, are those real in that photo? For me it looks shopped.
