Container Housing

This design study focuses on the use of 20 and 40 foot shipping containers in low cost housing. The versatility of shipping containers in an architectural or urban context is a reoccurring theme in our work; the allocation of a small scale urban program in container shells is further explored in projects such as P.O.D. or Plug N Skate and T.B.C.; the collective form of grouped container structures with mixed uses has been developed in the Modular Village.
