Jure Kotnik, an architect based out of Slovenia, is most well known for his recent book called Container Architecture as well as a number of completed cargotecture projects. The traveling architecture exhibition was designed to showcase high-provide container projects from around the world as well as to promote his monograph. Featuring the works of 19 firms, the show demonstrates the many uses of containers in the built environment and proves that quality architecture isn’t about the materials, but rather how you use them.

You’ll see works works you recognize and ones you don’t along with projects from LOT-EK, Platoon, Shigeru Ban, Adam Kalkin, Hybrid Architecture and more. The exhibit also features information on the important characteristics of container architecture along with scale model shipping containers. The 1:50 scale models let visitors try their hand at shipping container architecture.

The Container Architecture Expo is open for one more month in the Seattle AIA Gallery at 1911 First Avenue. You can tour the exhibit on Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for free.
