Architecture Firm Creates College Media Lab With Shipping Containers

By

We’ve seen shipping containers get transformed into indoor farms and tiny homes. Now they're even being used for school buildings, evidenced by a project taken on by Bard College in New York to create a media laboratory. All it took to create the structure were four shipping containers, one day, and $200,000.

The project was headed by MB Architecture, a firm based in the United States that specializes in homes, housing, public spaces, and art projects. Design for the media lab came from the architecture firm's "Insta House" prototype built in 2009 in the Hamptons for a residential building with a bedroom on the second floor and living area on the first.
