Shipping Container Architecture.

Shipping Container Architecture.

In past we got you 'Alternate Use Of Containers' and here we have some interesting 'Shipping Container Architecture'.

Shipping Container Architecture (21) 1The Dordoy Bazaar is a large wholesale and retail market in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan (Central Asia) and is almost entirely composed of containers, and is of comparable size. Empty shipping containers are commonly used in markets and as warehouses in the countries of the former USSR.

Shipping Container Architecture (21) 3Here we have a shipping container home Zigloo Domestique (Victoria, British Columbia, Canada), which is a residential home created by Keith Dewey. The project costed about $150 per square foot, compared to a similar quality traditional construction project, which is quite reasonable.
