Cargotecture is a creative reuse of a plentiful global resource

On view in Dussedorf at NRW-Forum is an exhibit of “cargotecture“. While many of these designs exist only on the page there is a real-life built example in Providence, Rhode Island.

The Box Office is sited next to the train tracks and developed as permanent office space with eye-catching colors. If you can’t visit either you can go there virtually via NPR.

Another variation on the theme is the Mobile Dwelling Unit which has pop-out sections which are deployed when the container is sited and lock back in place for shipping. Endless variety for convenient relocation in our modern global economy.
