Shipping Containers For Culture

Perhaps one of the best executions of shipping container architecture, Graft Architects outdid themselves. The Platoon Kunsthalle Cultural Development center is Seoul, Korea houses exhibitions, a restaurant, event hall, artist studios, library, lounge, offices, and a roof top bar. Damn, is it missing anything? The entire building is made from 28 ISO cargo containers beautifully stacked to create large subdivided interior spaces. I love the exterior treatment but the interior feels cold and lifeless – a far cry from the minds of creative wizards.
