Container Obsession



Continuing on from random old stuff mixed with the new, I got thinking about about Shiguru Ban's industrial chic container art museums (above). We just don't get that sort of stuff in Hong Kong, despite being stuffed to the gills with containers (anyone know how to visit a container city?). Instead we get boring Channel by Zaha pavillions.


This Freitag HQ is also an old favorite of mine- very constructivist. And yea, seems like the container craze is catching on more and more reading this http://www.inhabitat.com/tag/shipping-containers/

Can't wait to do a container house / studio / bike store...
