SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE CONTAINERS / by Luís De Garrido. The book aims to demonstrate a methodology for sustainable architecture using containers.


The containers have been designed to store and transport goods over long distances, and in a tight, economical and safe way. However, it also happens, the curious coincidence that the spaces that have been designed for storing and transporting goods, have a proper human scale. That is, they are also valid for designing living spaces. However, do not forget that the containers have not been designed to be lived in. Therefore, the first thing to be done when using containers in architecture is to ensure the minimum conditions of habitability inside. Therefore, Luis De Garrido analyzes all actions to be carried out in order to make habitable the buildings made ​​by containers, and also achieve real sustainable architecture using them.

These actions include: 1. To illustrate the process, Luis De Garrido analyzes -exhaustively- 4 model buildings that he has projected using containers: Shipping Container Plan and Section Details.
