Shipping Container Architecture

Lifecycle Building Competition

This design solution for a highly sustainable housing solution involves one of Container Nation’s longtime passions for container design and deployment. The project was an International Competition award-winning entry for the “Lifecycle Building Challenge” sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency and Stop Waste.org. In this case, the containers are expressed in their raw industrial, more modern state, but could also be “dressed up” in a variety of ways so as not even to look like their original form. In wide use throughout other parts of the world, the US trails virtually every other nation in their re-use.
