reuse [reduce?]

some time this past fall i fell for straight lines and simplicity - of course with one's personal vibrant touch - and then i met the whole refurb shipping container thing, some have called it cargotecurte [ok, mainly HyBrid in seattle], and everything really started to come together. ISO shipping containers line the shores of the U.S. as goods are shipped to the U.S. from all over the world but with little exporting going on state side there's not much to fill those bad boys up and ship them out again. so some very creative people have begun making due with what they've got - and they've done it rather nicely. Here are 15 of the hundreds of shipping container projects from 2010 - there are so many more and some architectural firms are really doing beautiful work. These are some works from 2006... my my my, we've come a long way
