Shigeru Ban Architects created this concept in 2011 after the tsunami and earthquake in Japan. It involves the construction of a communal site of habitation made from shipping containers. The buildings would be three storeys high and can be built on uneven surfaces and further earthquakes.
The whole idea of creating temporary housing from shipping containers is very modern. It has sparked ideas for a permanent housing concept that I could expand within my practice. Below I have designed my concept for a shipping container house.
Although I feel this concept could be a strong one, I do not know how relevant it is into my current practice. However looking into a shipping container space could be of interest, I know there are some outside the university building and I would like to look in being able to use them for my FMP.
