The term Cargotecture was coined by HyBrid Architecture of Seattle around 2004 to describe any building system built entirely or partially from ISO shipping containers. Even not mentioning the manageability, time-saving, and modular organisation advantages of building with shipping containers, Cargotecture still sounds like a remarkably ethical idea considering the fact that an estimated two million empty shipping containers are sitting idle at any given time. The good news is: containers are so versatile it is completely up to architects whether they want to expose them or hide them, use them merely as a structurally strong prefab construction element or design an entire building structure around their module. And if they are only needed for a temporary project they can easily be re-recycled into a new structure. Enjoy!
