The use of recycled freight containers in architectural projects is becoming more and more common. Their uniform dimensions not only mean that containers lend themselves perfectly to modular construction, they are also easily adapted to sustainable living. Building on the basic concept that architects can create virtually any type of building using containers, this superbly illustrated volume examines two major types of architectural project - single family homes, and buildings for public use, such as classrooms and sports halls. Within these two categories, Ultimate Containers showcases some of the most innovative creations from architecture firms around the world.
