When the Tokio Express freighter lost 62 containers after being hit by a freak wave 20 miles off Lands End in 1997,  4.8 million pieces of LEGO entered the sea.

Ironically, many of the sets were nautical-themed and bits and pieces have been washing up on the Cornwall coast (and occasionally Ireland and Wales too) for the last 17 years – collected competitively by aficionados and assiduously documented by the Facebook site Lego Lost At Sea.

The ‘Hive-Inn’ is a concept by Japanese architects OVA studio for a modular hotel composed of specially adapted shipping containers (emblazoned with high end advertising) which are slotted in and out of the structure by a dedicated roof crane.

The hotel shrinks and expands to suit demand and the container ‘rooms’  are envisaged as themed, branded spaces on the inside too.
