Containertecture: Shipping Crate Based Buildings by LOT EK

Early explorers in the realm of prefab shipping container-based architecture, design studio LOT-EK stacks these steel crates to create everything from compact homes to massive retail complexes. Making aesthetics and functionality equally important, LOT-EK gives the containers a visual dynamism while keeping its structures economical, portable and easy to assemble.

Sanlitun South

Bright red shipping containers burst out of the facade of the Sanitlun South retail complex in Beijing, “organized like a medieval village with a dense fabric of narrow alleys, low-rise buildings, elevated walkways and bridges connection all levels.” Eight-foot-wide shipping containers inserted randomly throughout the structure determine the rhythm of the whole, functioning as canopies over the retail store entrances on the exterior and functioning as small lobbies for stores on the inside.

Six stacked steel shipping containers form a dense, minimalist cube functioning as an ultra-modern art studio space for the Whitney Museum of UKn Art in New York. The 700-square-foot, 2-story space features a vivid yellow diagonal slice running up to the roof to create a skylight.

PUMA City Shipping Container Store

Transported from Spain to Stockholm to Boston, PUMA’s pop-up store had to be highly portable and easy to assemble and disassemble. LOT-EK retrofitted 24 shipping containers to create a retail and event building that could go from one international port to the next, but still feel fresh and dynamic and highly functional. The four-story space features double-height ceilings, a downstairs retail space, upstairs offices and storage, and a bar and open terrace on the top. 40-foot-long shipping containers along the outside join and secure the whole structure both horizontally and vertically.

APAP OpenSchool

The APAP2010 OpenSchool building serves as a recreational space for a public art program at an art school in South Korea, and also as a testing ground for ‘radical container assemblies with high sculptural potential.’ 8 containers are cut along a 45-degree angle and assembled in what LOT-EK describes as “a fishbone pattern generating a large arrow-like volume lifted three meters over the landscape.” The bent container offers access from the pedestrian path outside to the upper levels of the building.

C-Home

Containertecture: Shipping Crate Based Buildings by LOT EK

C-Home is a series of pre-fabricated homes upcycling shipping containers to provide anywhere from 300 to 1300 square feet of living space. Since they’re made of recycled materials – and shipping containers are composed of strong Cor-ten steel – they’re both affordable and durable. Folding cut-outs in the facade let in light and provide a terrace when open.

Mercury concept watch is actually a simple analogue watch but with a little bit sci-fi touch, so time telling won’t be difficult. Peter Fletcher, the designer, wanted to design something that is back to basic without sacrificing futuristic look of the watch.

This watch uses off the shelf movements, the unique thing about this timepiece lies in its case where the hands and markers have been designed in organic form and they look like random splashes of liquid metal or mercury. The lighting accessory also functions as markers to help you read the time easier.

‘Charcoal’ is a mist humidifier that doesn’t need you to open its cover to supply water. The only thing you have to do is pouring a bottle of water through the top area. During this process, the LED turns blue from red, it also alerts you when you need more water through its glowing LED. There’s no set dial or button to control how much mist to come out, you can simply turn the body to control how much mist to spray. There’s only one I/O button that can be used to turn this device on/off.

The inspiration came from charcoal natural purifying and humidifying process through its carbon structure. Charcoals evaporation produces a lot of moisture as charcoals absorb water from air pretty fast and then evaporate it.

Unstealable Bike: Theft Proof Bicycle Frame Doubles as Lock

If you are sick of worrying about your bike being stolen or taking a lock with you wherever you go, this design will solve both of those every problems faced by bicyclists around the world.

Unstealable Bike: Theft Proof Bicycle Frame Doubles as Lock

In less than 20 seconds, the Unstealable Bike‘s locking system can be deployed by unlatching and rotating two pieces of the frame, then sliding out and using the seat bar to connect and secure those two parts.

Unlike most quick-release seats, the ability to slide out the bar becomes an asset rather than a liability in this case, making it possible to lock up your bicycle with one of its most frequently-stolen pieces.

The scale of the components employed makes it easy to attach the cycle to anything from a slim signpost to a thick tree.

Unstealable Bike: Theft Proof Bicycle Frame Doubles as Lock

Created by a team of three engineers, the bike is currently a prototype and seeking funding for mass-production and sale. Its builders bill it as safe, well-designed and comfortable – a more useful variant of the frequently-seen projects for collapsible bicycles.

Forging Fun, Not Profit: Master Copycat Fakes Out 50+ Museums

Mark Landis is a US artist and actor of extraordinary ability, having spent decades faking various identities and committing a kind of faux philanthropy, having donated copied artworks he creates to churches and museums for decades.

Forging Fun, Not Profit: Master Copycat Fakes Out 50+ Museums

Diagnosed schizophrenic and the subject of a new documentary film Art and Craft (preview below), Landis has not been convicted of any crime since his activities were uncovered over five years ago. Primarily, he is protected by the fact that he has never sold (only gifted) his faked paintings, drawings and watercolors.

Amazingly, it took over twenty years for anyone to work out his ruse – finally, someone noted that not only was a painting he attempted to give previously donated elsewhere, but it was even gifted under the same fake moniker.

The fakes are often painted from catalog photos or over a color-printed copy that he simply creates at a copying shop, takes home and starts working over. Meanwhile, under his real name, he has also sold original paintings for years.

Forging Fun, Not Profit: Master Copycat Fakes Out 50+ Museums

No one can be entirely certain of what drives Landis, since honesty and transparency are not his strongest suits, but presumably he enjoys acting the role of a generous donor, tricking the people he dupes, and ultimately seeing his faked works on display in major museums around the United States.

He loves being a prolific philanthropist, real or otherwise, and claims to like his role as faux Jesuit priest as well. In the end, he notes, that it doesn’t really matter to the viewer whether the thing they are seeing is real – so what should they care if the work they see is not original?

Even though there’s no window, this jet still features breath taking view through its entire cabin. IXION Windowless Jet is a concept design that proposes something different to challenge current idea, it’s not just fantasy, but it’s credible and relevant.

The design team has designed a business jet that breaks conventional thinking with its exterior and interior technology. The goal was to come up with different and unique interior concepts, thus, the idea of removing all the windows from cabin arose. It’s controversial idea yet interesting, instead of using windows, this concept jet utilizes not so distant from the future technology to display the outside environment to inside surfaces of the cabin through external cameras.

Designer : Technicon Design

By removing all those windows, IXION would benefit from weight reduction, it means simpler construction while opening up a wide spectrum of possibilities for interior design. This jet will also take advantage of sun’s energy with its solar panels to power low voltage systems on board, it would create a unique visual dynamic for the exterior.

Can you imagine the view that passengers would enjoy from inside this jet? It’s like flying on a transparent jet, passengers can also choose different views at the same time using the same screen.
