Adam Kalkin is part artist, part architect. His 12 Container Home design shows off both parts flawlessly. Built from – surprise – 12 recycled shipping containers, the ultra-modern open-air home somehow manages to feel cozy.

Great site for Shipping Container Architecture: firmitas.org

This is a webpage devoted to listing as many examples of people using shipping containers as architectural elements as I can find, in an effort to embolden people to use containers in building projects, when and where doing so is feasible and appropriate. Be aware that containers are not a perfect building material, since they tend to corrode, but they have been used effectively in some cases, especially in areas near saltwater. This is mainly a links page, and I cannot guarantee anything at all about the sites that I am offering links to, but I try to periodically search for and add links that are fresh and offer something useful and interesting, and I remove bad links and projects where information is incomplete. If you have a site worth adding, or experiences to relate in using containers for building, please contact me.
