Installed and expanded over the course of four years, Container City, a cargotecture complex on Trinity Buoy Wharf, is the crown jewel of London’s Docklands. Originally destined for the incinerator, these retired shipping containers have now been repurposed as affordable, ecological homes and workspaces.
The community is comprised of two structures: Container City I and Container City II, with both “cities” linked by interconnecting bridges. Though development took years, installation of the buildings took just four and eight days, respectively. The compartments are fitted out almost entirely with recycled materials, and additional floors were added over time.
