Reinventing the Shipping Container Part 6

Box Office which is currently 75% leased, built by Distill Studio and great for startups, is a Providence, Rhode Island feature that utilizes shipping containers in an actual application. Check out some of the photos below.

The building is a welcome addition to a blighted area and a model for the sort of green building that that Cicilline said he hopes to make Providence a national leader in. "This area has been long neglected," said City Councilor John Lombardi, who represents Federal Hill. "What they’re looking to do is certainly something different."

The movement to recycle old shipping containers has taken off primarily because there are so many of them in circulation.

Containers, while a cheap and efficient way for companies to send their goods internationally, are too costly to send back to their home ports empty. The result, according to Case, is that there are "literally hundreds of thousands of these things sitting in ports."

Some of the most recognized projects include Container City, a residential complex made of containers in London’s Docklands, that was built in 2001 and today has 37 live-work spaces.

Amsterdam boasts one of the world’s largest container residences: a dormitory complex completed in 2006 with 1,000 units of student housing. And in April, Boston’s Fan Pier played host to Puma City, a temporary collection of 24 shipping containers, arranged into a multilevel Puma retail store with a bar and event space. (Source)

Profoundly Hilarious and Disturbing

Maybe the best thing I did with myself yesterday was to discover this silly ass tumblr blog, Chicks with Steve Busceme Eyes.

It will change your life, although I’d hate to speculate on how.

W. Eugene Smith

17 December 2010 - 16 March 2011 at Foam Amsterdam:

This winter, Foam presents a retrospective with work by W. Eugene Smith (US, 1918−1978). Smith has been hailed as the founder of the photographic essay. His extensive pictorial narratives, accompanied by captions and comments, appeared in magazines such as the world-famous American periodical Life in the 1950s, during the heyday of photographic journalism. Smith’s black-and-white reportages exhibit a powerful sense of involvement, dealing with subject matter that reflects his social commitment.

This is a view of Paris (France) from the top of the Eiffel Tower (324 meters/1063 feet high). The original image is huge (9200 pixels wide). It actually is a montage of 12 photos I took when I was there (no fish eye, no wide angle, no autopano…).
