Shipping Container Buildings 

Shipping Container buildings are pushing the boundaries of our imagination and giving architecture and building design a whole new level of creativity and sophistication.

The question is what can't be done with shipping containers - swimming pools, tiny homes and grand homes, massive office buildings and sky high hotels and so much more have been created already.

I have no doubt 'containers' will be an interesting and exciting part of the 'design and building' future internationally either in the 'DIY' way or by professionals.

Many architects from all over the world are enjoying the opportunity of using containers which are not 'pretty' and designing, constructing unique and stunning shipping container buildings and homes and anything else they dare to try.
