in 1956, an american road haulage operator invented the container. today, containers transport 80% of goods (by value), and around 1.6 million of them are constructed each year. in 2010, there were over 18 million containers in use worldwide for transport. we propose to create the contemporary music centre by recycling used containers, for the following reasons:
- the flexibility of use offered by a unit that can be added, moved, rearranged, etc.
- rapid creation of the premises, facilitated by the modular nature of the system.
- durability of the construction material, which enables the premises to withstand intensive use and vandalism.
- the visual identity communicated via a simple, expressive image for this new alternative cultural centre.
