The Container Principle: How a Box Changes the Way We Think (Infrastructures)
A cultural history of the shipping container as a crucible of globalization and a cultural paradigm.We live in a world organized around the container. Standardized twenty- and forty-foot shipping containers carry material goods across oceans and over land; provide shelter, office space, and storage capacity; inspire films, novels, metaphors, and paradigms.

He examines the container as a time capsule, sometimes breaking loose and washing up onshore to display an inventory of artifacts of our culture.

The Box - Architectural Solutions with Containers
Shipping containers are the most conspicuous symbol of the globalized world economy – 20 or 40 feet of pure steel reduced to the essentials. They are robust, standardized, inexpensive, universally available, and quickly assembled. Whether as single units, piled on top of each other, or placed in a row, covered or cut open – contemporary architecture uses containers as extremely versatile elements for a great variety of contexts. Their esthetic of practicality accommodates minimalistic temporary solutions, experimental design concepts, as well as highly demanding and complex building structures. The contemporary projects presented in this volume showcase the many functional and creative faces of the utilization of containers. Almost everything seems possible in the developing field of container architecture.
