Containers are modular, affordable, and internationally available. More and more often they are being used to build temporary structures such as pavilions, galleries, and bars as well as sophisticated housing and office spaces. Container Atlas presents a wide range of container architecture projects along with an in-depth investigation into the background and evolution of this topical field. Introducing the various types of containers currently in use today, from standard freight containers all the way to modular container frames, the book vividly illustrates how containers can be used to create inspiring spatial structures in both urban and rural settings. This comprehensive guide documents this extraordinary contemporary architectural phenomenon and reveals a profound variety of functional and aesthetic building possibilities. Container Atlas serves as a practical and inspirational reference not only for architects and engineers but also for all creatives eager to learn about the rich and diverse language of container architecture and modular building.
