I am addicted to converted shipping containers used as architectural building blocks, or in the case a simple outdoor structure. The welcome pavilions for the first annual Slow Food Nation event in San Francisco are a great example of the versatility of shipping containers. I can picture this same sort of design being used as an alternative to the prevalent food trucks. The design was by Jensen Architects who has created some amazing public spaces including the SFMOMA rooftop garden.
