Our idea was to create an ecological object from recycled materials and a green space surrounding it, which would encourage people to rediscover social life. We wanted to use simple and easy accessible resources. That is why we chose old cargo containers as our main structure and earth soil for creation of the landscape. This project is a proposal – how to reuse cargo containers.


We chose medium size containers with dimensions 12,20m x 2,40m x 2,60m. Because main structure (container) is prefabricated, everything that is needed to be done is to place it in the right spot. All further actions, such us covering it with earth and finishing is so simple, that it could be done by local people.


Interior walls are covered by simple wooden MDF plates, which are cheap but practical. They would also perfectly suit its industrial style. Containers made of steel are also rather resistible to vandalism – there is not really much what one can destroy and materials are durable.

The pavilion may hold different cultural functions, such as small library, mediatheque or café. Library is supposed to be a local platform for book exchange – so called book-crossing, a mediatheque –platform for multimedia exchange equipped with wi-fi connection. It might be a place where people could exchange their old books or download e-books and audiobooks.
