«The container, The Box that has changed the world, as Marc Levinson has defined it in his book, it’s just a metal box, without soul. How to transform it in architecture? The “Magic Box” perimeter an empty space, has an high structural resilience, is self-supporting, if used is very cheap compared to other building systems, these the ingredients of the winning formula that makes the container the protagonist of the architectural successful stories presented in this issue.
It can be converted to many possible uses: houses, emergency housing units, offices, cinemas, and restaurants. Fantasy is the only limit».

Boundaries is a GREAT magazine!

Yes, it is possible to add to the massive amount of coverage that Container Architecture has received of late. This magazine manages that feat! Take the famous, the infamous Adam Kalkin for example. His container work has been covered in every book for years and years. (His is also the only high-end work that lets you see EACH container in all its glory: not too chopped and not hidden behind cladding at all!) What did Boundries remind me about Mr. Kalkin? That he is an artist, an artist with great humor, and his container creations should be seen through that filter! In a book I once owned Mr. Kalkin involved his pet pooch in a "kinetic sculpture" that also involved a strong man. Quite graceful...and funny.
Yep, a Container design can be funny. And fun: look at Lot-ek for some real fun. And, OK, you can take it all seriously as well.
Boundaries is the best Architecture Magazine out there. I just bought all their back issues and started a subscription. They are shipped from Italy and come fast. Enjoy!

Responsible Architecture!

Each issue of the Italian magazine Boundaries is devoted to a theme, such as "Architecture for Emergencies" and "Architectures of Peace." Issues 5 and 6 have very similar themes, in that buildings made from shipping containers are another means of recycling; in fact, a couple of the projects collected in "Architecture and Recycling" use such containers. These two themes, and the projects found within, have a larger reach than, say, the first issue's focus on architecture in Africa; yet there still exists an emphasis on responsible architecture and finding alternatives for underserved people in much of the world. "Container Architectures" is an especially good issue, loaded with some of the best examples in the still-popular trend. It's as good (if not better in some respects) than the Container Atlas; and it's quite a bit cheaper.
