Not a fan of shipping containers as habitable space (maybe as a mobile kitchen or shelters along a hiking path) - trash as buildings and thermal bridging issues as well as needed large equipment to realize their inclusion in projects. Now recycling - I'm all for that - why don't they cut them up and melt them like all the other steel and turn them into traditional building materials? To me the limitations they represent are fatal to good design. Why?

Loved this article! The church in Australia and the tower in Italy my faves but all so inspiring and full of ideas.
