An illustrated celebration of architecture using shipping containers as modular building elements, resulting in affordable moveable and sustainable prefabricated homes. Architecture with containers is a form of sustainable architecture creating a very peculiar aesthetic from recycled material. It is a construction procedure based on the assembly of modular elements, in this case, containers used in maritime and rail transport of goods. They are robust, durable, economical, easily transportable, adaptable and sustainable. Their versatility makes them adaptable to the most diverse scales and needs: single-family and collective housing, shopping centres, offices, schools, hotels, restaurants, shelters, laboratories and works of ephemeral architecture.
