Devised by Urban Space Management, Container City is an innovative modular architecture system that creates affordable green, prefab accommodation for a range of uses.  This is one of Urban Space Management's first Container City projects.  Info from their website, "Containers are an extremely flexible method of construction, being both modular in shape, extremely strong structurally and readily available. Container Cities offer a reasonably priced alternative solution to traditional space provision. They are ideal for office and workspace, live, work and worker housing. Container Cities does not even have to look like containers! It is a relatively simple matter to completely clad the building externally in a huge variety of materials.

Finally the benefits of Container Homes or Cities can truly be seen in short and medium term land use projects. Short-life sites can have Container Houses that simply unbolts and can be relocated or stored when land is required for alternative uses. To date this alternative method of construction has successfully created youth centers, classrooms, office space, artists studios, live / work space and retail space."
