Various Other Container Projects

These are some projects which use shipping containers in unconventional ways.

Below is the the fhiltex project

Below is the Pad Home (see BLDGBLOG - the original firm doesn't appear to exist anymore)
We don't really know anything about it, but it looks nice. It may in fact only use container-like forms, as there appears to be wood cladding.

And one of my favourites so far, the depressingly hard-to-find Ten Year Hotel. The original site no longer exists. It uses a system of shipping containers in a sort of grid matrix with walkways suspended between them.

I refuse, also, to let anyone forget about Keetwonen- a temporary and extremely successful example.
