Container Atlas: A Practical Guide to Container Architecture

We have quite a few posts about container housing and modifications, and the great uses of containers around the world; so after a few recommendations we decided to pick up a copy of "Container Atlas: A Practical Guide to Container Architecture". Even if you don't have the time to read the history of each project, it makes a great coffee table book and conversation starter. Container Atlas is loaded with high quality pictures of some of the most famous container development projects around the world. Commercial buildings like The Freitag Store in Zurich, Containr Cinema in Vancouver, and Puma City in Alicante, Spain; and residential projects like Infiniski Manifesto House in Curacaví, Chile and the off the grid Holyoke Cabin in Duluth, Minnesota are covered in great detail throughout the book. Not only does the book provide great pictures, but it also details the plans and the costs associated with building the structures. If you're thinking of starting your own conversion project, or just a container enthusiast, this book will be a positive addition to your library. [ read more about shipping container conversions]
