Alan Stulberg, a vintage motorcycle builder and mechanic, has been thinking about this project for nearly six years. Deciding to take the plunge, he drew a rough sketch one day and five months later, here’s the Studio Pod. Stulberg built the container studio in his backyard in Austin, Texas, and it’s now being used as a creative artist space.
Recently I noticed this container structure, The Moderne Showroom, which is a sales center for a mixed-use tower planned for Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It's not the first container sales center we've seen — recall the MirabeauB sales center — but it's interesting, temporary, and functional. The structure was designed by Rinka Chung Architecture and provides another example of shipping container reuse in an architectural context.
