The Greentainer Project in Gandino, Italy is yet another expression of container architecture, albeit this time it’s for a more whimsical application. The project used one, standard-sized, 40-foot container and transformed it into a structure that’s mobile, flexible, and self-sufficient. In its current form, Greentainer is perfect for multiple uses and almost infinite locations, plus the rooftop solar panels provide all the energy necessary to run the heating and cooling system, lights, and other devices. So you could potentially use it for a party, event, grand opening, art show, or any other scheme you can come up with.
Make sure to check out our growing archives of container projects, too.
