Project C –Container Transformation: 1st Episode –Container Design Competition
A shipping container is a metal vessel that is assembled under a standardized format and then stacks on top of each other to transport various goods around the world on cargo ships providing affordable shipping services. The cargo shipping industry is the integral component of making Hong Kong one of the most important transit port in the world. Despite its rigid appearance, a shipping container is also surprisingly fluid; and VESSEL is a notable example of transforming shipping containers into office spaces, food kiosks, gallery, etc. What kind of creative surprises would a vessel carry to us this time?
