Foreword

There were countless interesting projects submitted for the Construction Container Facelift architecture competition, many of which dug below the surface to conceptualise some fascinating and intriguing reimaginings of the construction container. However, for this competition the jury chose to focus on those submissions that offered a realistic implementation of a novel solution; those that did not compromise the durability and functionality of the containers in order to redefine their aesthetics.

3rd Prize Winner

Project name

A Container Surprise

It is important to me to maintain the creative process where I can fulfill ideas and express myself. I like to stay sharp and push myself to further develop and elaborate my ideas. I think a good project isn’t necessarily the most magnificent one, but the one with a special and sometimes simple concept which the art of architecture has transformed into something unique. Also, taking part in competitions helps me to further pursue temporary and shipping container architecture which is my main interest at this stage.
