Stacked Shipping Container Pavilion
COP15 as delegates in Copenhagen, Danish. MAPT architects have built a striking pavilion consists of a set of old shipping containers stacked like building blocks. Pavilion which will be recycled into urban house interactive exhibits.
Aiming for the overall development of the city is Copenhagen will become an international city, a remarkable example of sustainable urban development.
The same values form the basis for the framework of the North Harbor Exhibition. Containers that are recycled and made the pavilion will have been developed by the MAPT architect’s office in cooperation with the City of Copenhagen.
Many containers are piling up in ports such as Copenhagen, because the value of their income is often less than the amount it cost to ship, then the container can not be sent, and returned to where they came from.
After seeing a kind of “grave shipping container”, MAPT architects decided to design this container into the exhibition hall during the conference COP15.
According to the architects, The idea is simple: take the product materials are not used as, shipping containers and provide some value again. Interior pavilion is rubbish – literally! Material surplus products of wood and the wind turbine industry. In other words, the pavilion to promote the idea that recycling can be beautiful if the materials are put together right. This also suggests a new aesthetic, where the story and important content.
Although this temporary pavilion uninsulated, MAPT speculated that a series of simple changes in the container can quickly and cheaply, can be converted into passive houses and other structures. Steel framework which also lends durable industrial-chic aesthetic sure to bring modern design to please the fans design.
