Old container recycled into an art gallery with zero carbon footprints
A standard art gallery is a good gallery only when it satisfies the elements of space, sustainability and accessibility. But the School of Art has defied convention and has converted an old shipping container into a zero carbon mobile exhibition gallery. Powered by 130 watt solar panel, the designers replaced the old wooden toxic flooring with wood recovered from shipping pallets. They also installed skylights made from recycled frosted glass, placed at angles corresponding to the degrees of the Tropic of Cancer and Capricorn. This way they have very smartly used recycled materials and applied small scale sustainable methods to build up this green design!
