Exhibition: Container Architecture at the NRW Forum Museum in Duesseldorf

The NRW-Forum Duesseldorf (Germany) invited renowned architects, designers, and artists from around the world to submit designs for container architecture. The response was overwhelming. Submissions included not only existing container buildings, but also new designs that were created specially for the exhibition. Two dozen of these designs have been reconstructed as models on a scale of 1:5 for the ‘Container Architecture’ exhibition; the highest of the models breaks through the ceiling of the museum. Over 100 designs were submitted for consideration and every one of them will be included in a frieze of pictures running around the walls of the exhibition space.

Submissions came from Sean Godsell, MVRVD, Adam Kalkin, Jure Kotnik, Massimiliano Fuksas, Graft, Platoon, Ingenhoven Architects,Han Slawik, Stefan Sous, Luc Deleu, and many others around the world. A catalogue and a magazine will accompany the exhibition. The exhibition will run from June 8 to September 4. For more information, please click here.
