Movable Architecture : A Design Guide to Container Reuse, Hardback Book

Movable Architecture : A Design Guide to Container Reuse Hardback

Edited by Ross Gilbert



Focusing on the requirement for energy-efficient sustainable architecture with a small carbon footprint, this book explores the many ways in which containers can be renovated to create housing and more.

With environmentally friendly design, low associated costs and ease of mobility, containers could be a great future contributor to the development of low-carbon architecture. This book features a detailed analysis of over 40 container projects, each with their own prominent features.

These are presented alongside landscape plans, technical drawings and text explanations.

In addition to the case studies, design guidelines are supplied alongside information regarding the relevant construction standards for container buildings, making this book both inspirational and a practical resource for designers and architects.
