Architecture & Interiors

New York based architects LOT-EK is blurring the boundaries between art, architecture, entertainment and information. LOT-EK creates architecture from existing objects, systems and technologies to be used as raw materials.

Their work for PUMA City is pretty cool.

Taking advantage of the global shipping network already in place, Puma City makes
use of 24 shipping containers. This 11,000 square foot traveling pavilion which was originally built for Puma's entry in the 2008 Volvo
Ocean Race is a transportable retail and event building.

The Pavilion is fully dis-mountable and travels on a cargo ship and will be assembled and disassembled a number of times once it reaches the different international harbors.

    While there are a lot of ridiculous architectural re-uses for cargo containers out there this one seems to make sense. That the composition breaks down and is carried to its next destination via container ship is a good use of the building blocks. Thanks for covering this.
