Those of you who have been paying attention to my Twitter stream will note that I ‘have issues’ with the beigeness of my current abode. I suppose if you add to that having been brought up in the world of the Lego generation and, a certain fondness for Mondrian, then it’s not hard to see why Container Cityâ„¢ appeals to me.
I am a great fan of modular construction concepts, for heaven’s sake I had three ‘K’ series BMWs. I’m sure there are compromises with the notion but in a world where ownership is still the done thing, but a done thing that can’t be done by an increasing number, alternatives need to be done.
Alternative of course is a clichÃ© that if one is not careful becomes another box to jump into. These are boxes that, on the face of it I would be happy to jump into though. Make mine a red, a yellow and a blue one. Go on then, drop a nice silver one on the top too, put the whole lot on the edge of the estuary, just for now, I may move soon.
Containers are an extremely flexible method of construction, being both modular in shape, extremely strong structurally and readily available. Container Cities offer an alternative solution to traditional space provision. They are ideal for office and workspace, live-work and key-worker housing.
Container Cities do not even have to look like containers! It is a relatively simple matter to completely clad a building externally in a huge variety of materials.
