Green Cabinet [1] recently unveiled plans to transform a shipping container [2] into an elegant pavilion for exhibiting arts and crafts. The pavilion is opaque from the outside-in but transparent from the inside-out. The facade is covered with a mirrored coating, and its reflective properties create an interesting interaction between the building and the environment.
