Recycled shipping containers given new reasons to live, give us new reasons to shop!
Recycled shipping containers have found their uses, turning into mobile homes and shops before. Its time now for them to be used as an entire shopping mall too! LOT-EK, an architecture firm has come up with this mall, made out of recycled shipping containers that might soon find a home on a corner at 42nd St. and 5th Avenue in New York City. Nine levels high, the mall will be constructed by simply stacking the shipping containers one above the other unevenly for an undulating surface. Currently, New York City is dotted with spots of unused and unoccupied land. Using shipping containers to build structures in areas like these could help, taken that they’re cheaper to build, easier to work with and can be dismantled easily too!
Move away silly old building materials! We’d rather recycle the old shipping containers and use them instead!
