CONTAINER AND MODULAR BUILDINGS: CONSTRUCTION AND DESIGN MANUAL. Cornelia Dorries and Sarah Zahradnik. DOM Publishers, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Actar D/Actar Distribution Inc., New York. 252 pp. with 422 ills. (321 col.). 28 x 23 cm. ISBN 9783869225159 In English.
Publisher's description: Bold and unconventional ideas are called for if the intention is to steer the debate on temporary accommodation for refugees in a new direction offering high-quality solutions. From eccentric experiments all the way to projects which have already been realized, international design teams present their work between the twin poles of unconventional developments and life-saving shelters in this compilation of case studies, Container and Modular Buildings. Not all of these are applicable to the current refugee crisis, since that which digital nomads find hip constitutes harsh reality for others. Yet alongside playful follies, we can find miniature architectural structures for the homeless as well as outpatient medical stations which offer a response to social problems and space shortages. The photographic material puts forward ideas as to how more can be done than the mere assembling of containers.
