Maybe you've seen them on trains, boats or flatbed trucks. They're hauled across the country and across the world, their square metal bodies easily recognizable. Their utilitarian build isn't the most glamorous, their boxy shape not the most delicate.
Probably not the first thing you think of when you're dreaming of your ideal home or office. Maybe not the second, third or fourth either. But several innovative designers have re-imagined these sensible shippers in new and amazing ways. Once just a way to get stuff from point A to point B, these structures are now living exciting second lives as pizza trucks, music stages, starbucks and vacation getaways. Lookout, shipping containers coming through!
