Lexus Features Architects Using Shipping Containers As Building Blocks

Our friend Architect Peter DeMaria is featured by Lexus for their reuse movement ad campaign. The Lexus slogan is: See how the reuse movement is shaping the world and how Lexus practices responsible manufacturing. This is a good way to spread the idea of re-using industrial materials in new projects, such as the shipping containers into cool new modern eco homes.

Checkout the shipping container architecture section here on G Living and also our interview with Peter DeMaria on Room101

    I’ve followed DeMaria’s work ever since he was interviewed by GLIVING.COM and it has opened a whole new world of sustainable architecture for me. If Lexus would hire him to do their headquarters or manufacturing facilities, that would be a huge commitment to a sustainable approach to design, not just branding by association. Go Lexus, Go DeMaria!

    This architect just won a prestigious award with the American Institute of Architects for a church project in Los Angeles and Gliving kind of discovered him before he was on the radar screen. I listened to him make a great presentation at the Dwell Magazine design conference over the summer and I'm hooked on his work. Get him back in your studio, he is working on container hotels and schools and who knows what else. This type of work is exciting!

    Shipping containers: once a fundamental unit of transpoation, now a fundamental unit of architecture. Expect to see them everywhere.
