Last year’s FFA Orlando/AIA Florida Chapter architecture competition asked participants to design a new health care clinic for the homeless in the Paramore district of downtown Orlando, FL. Recent graduates Gretel and Lance Moore of Co-Tain [1] rose to the challenge with this thoughtful design, which uses recycled shipping containers to construct a simple but effective, campus-like clinic. The proposal was unique from other entrants in that it was affordable and mobile – not to mention sustainable!
