micro shipping container

This tiny visitors hut at Toronto's Evergreen Brick Works yard caught my eye.

The welcome hut reuses 1/2 a shipping container to provide visitors with information about the urban reclamation project Brick Works by Levitt Goodman Architects.

In the 1960s and 70s, the company produced more than 43 million bricks each year. But after business slowed in the 1980s, the yard closed and the 12-acre site fell into shambles. Renamed Evergreen Brick Works, the site is designed to be a community, environmental space where sustainable businesses can establish themselves and grow; artists can work; and locals can come to explore the site, take a walk, ice skate, buy local produce at the farmers' market, and meander around the 16 buildings being rehabilitated.

    The shipping containers create such a cool, modern look when painted and re-used. Check out these container homes – who wouldn’t want to live in one of these? http://t.co/66kG2c8M
