If you ever find yourself in the South Korean capital, check out this blue set of metal boxes that’s actually a huge shopping mall. Built in 2015, the Common Ground mall is made up of 200 modular shipping containers that house almost 17,400 square feet of space.

According to the Korea Tourism Organization, architecture firm Urbantainer architects made it so that the containers could be rearranged and transported if need be.
