Container Housing Approved to Aid Haitians
The "Container Cities" are pat of a project by architect Richard Moreta and his firm Richard's Architecture + Design. Inhabitat takes a look at the proposal, which is to be built in the Dominican Republic.
"Unlike many of the other container projects, Moreta's utilizes a steel frame system with rubber rollers, which the containers are inserted into, allowing them to be easily stacked on a solid foundation. This system is also easily scalable, can respond quickly to the changing needs of the complex, and is lightweight and structurally sound against earthquakes."
