Clogged Metropolitan Arteries

Clogged Metropolitan Arteries | CITIES ON MOVEMENT | Scoop.it
Bad conditions of mobility and accessibility to jobs and services in most metropolitan regions in developing countries are a key development issue. Besides the negative effects on the wellbeing of their populations associated with traffic congestion and time spent on transportation, the latter mean economic losses in terms of waste of human and material resources.
Milena Suarez's insight:

Seems something familiar.

Eco-Friendly Architecture: 13 Buildings Made From Recycled Shipping Containers

Eco-Friendly Architecture: 13 Buildings Made From Recycled Shipping Containers | CITIES ON MOVEMENT | Scoop.it

All over the world, architects are repurposing old shipping containers and turning them into innovative, beautiful houses, hotels, libraries, workspaces, and even seaside observation decks. Shipping container buildings are designed to have a minimal impact on the environment, are cost-effective, and modular designs can easily be moved from place to place.

We hope you'll be as inspired as we are by these 13 buildings made out of shipping containers.

Shipping containers aren't just rectangular boxes - at least not in creative hands.

It's nice to see shipping containers beautified. Not just an ugly extra garage for the old buick.:D

In preparation for the centennial, AIA San Diego and the San Diego Museum of Art recently held an ideas competition for improvements to Balboa Park, the site of the fair.
