Container and Modular Buildings: Construction and Design Manual
An in-depth look at how tent cities and containers could possibly be the best short-term housing solution for displaced persons.
In common with politicians, architects were caught unawares by the largest wave of migration since the end of the Second World War. From eccentric experiments all the way to projects that have already been realised, international design teams present their work between the twin poles of unconventional developments and life-saving shelters. This book covers everything from playful follies to architectural constructions for the homeless and out-patient medical stations which offer a response to social problems and space shortages.
