Hybrid Seattle - cargotecture


HyBrid Seattle describe themselves as "a multi-disciplinary team of creative thinkers in the fields of architecture, art, landscape architecture, history and urban ecology." Their particular interests are ecological designs, prefab and cargotecture (building using shipping containers - they say cargotecture has the ability to "transcend values related to beauty and aesthetics and to affect people on a visceral and emotional level".). Here are two examples of their interesting work. Above, the detached studio, a garden office model specifically aimed at shedworkers which can also feature a roof deck and solar panels. Below is the similar Studio 320 in situ. The web site is well worth a browse with plenty of lovely images and a forum.
