LOT-EK's proposal for the Taichung City Cultural Center in Taiwan calls for building the new museum and library out of 1,620 recycled shipping containers.


New York-based architecture firm LOT-EK has made a name for itself by constructing buildings from recycled shipping containers. So it did't come as much of a surprise to learn that the firm's proposal for the Taichung City Cultural Center in western Taiwan called for building the new public library and fine arts museum out of cargo containers.


What is surprising is the scale of the project -- the proposal calls for 1,620 shipping containers to create an eco-friendly cultural landmark in the bustling Taiwanese city.
