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

Eco-Friendly Architecture: 13 Buildings Made From Recycled Shipping Containers | Offset your carbon footprint | 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.

One of the architectural trends we hope to see more of in 2014 is eco-friendly architecture, and these buildings are excellent examples of that.

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

It is time for the business world to accept fully the one planet principle; we have this earth, its geological resources and our fragile biosphere - that's it.  The Prince of Wales is spot on when he calls for the business world to become main players in planetary stewardship.

||"The time then has surely come for our financial institutions to recognise that the Earth is not a limitless resource that can be plundered at will, and to integrate that principle of stewardship into our financial structures."||

Come on business world; face up to the big challenge of continuing economic health on a finite planet.  So far you have not even begun to glimmer with bright ideas let alone deliver sustainable economic growth,
