Gelstaten is publishing an updated version of their ‘Container Atlas’ book and we can’t wait to read it! Coming out on April 21st, the second publication will provide an update of the phenom in the past ten years with detailed experiences and insight on the subject. Being one of the biggest environmentally-friendly architecture trends of the last decade, shipping containers as always been on of Trendland’s favorite!
This book presents a wide range of projects in container architecture – a contemporary architectural phenomenon. It features container structures used as pop-up stores and temporary exhibits as well as sophisticated housing and office spaces that provoke and inspire while setting new standards in functionality and aesthetics.
But the book is not only visually inspiring. Because it documents plans, describes associated costs, and suggests concrete solutions for common problems, it is a practical reference for architects, planners, and cultural activists as well as event and marketing managers, to guide them in deciding what types of containers are best suited to their upcoming projects.
