Pop-up mall made with shipping containers

What is it that makes the upcycling of shipping containers so interesting? These days you see them everywhere, from the Container pop-up stores here in São Paulo to a hotel made of containers in Chile.

I enjoyed an article on article on on Boxpark the World's first pop-up mall made with shipping containers that just opened up in East London's fashionable Shoreditch High Street. I'm always fascinated to see how so many cool retail concepts are created in London.

CNN also posted these other examples of how shipping containers are being used in other parts of the world...

These are definitely great designs! You could also check out the designs from the shippingcontainers24 website if you plan to make a home built from shipping containers.
