A lot of cool stuff is happening with shipping containers these days. I got a chance to evaluate use of shipping containers for a project once which got axed because of lack of data & will. It can be tricky especially if you are trying to use shipping containers in a project for the first time; but there are some very creative solutions out there.
Check out Hybridseattle
- a west coast firm with some very creative (but mostly academic) solutions.
Another interesting approach is the Container Home Kit (CHK) project from Lot-Ek
based in New York & Italy. The image at the top of this post is also from Lot-Ek (container mall).
Store in Zurich. Yes, that rusted stack of shipping containers - a very bold statement and I love it!
A kids activity center in Melbourne by a local firm Phooey Architects
made out of four shipping containers.
