During this time, architects have been developing increasingly inventive methods of working with this unassuming construction material, shifting from simple stacks to elaborate compositions. Whereas this architectural approach began as a straightforward way to create temporary buildings, Container Atlas seeks out luxurious remote hideaways, urban dwellings, community centers, and more, all showing how the humble container can put the fab into pre-fab.
