Reclaimed, reused and virtually indestructible: The gestalten bestseller Container Atlas comes in a long awaited updated edition. In recent years container architecture has become an essential part of our twenty-first-century surroundings, with it being used to create modular structures for pavilions, brand showrooms, retail premises and even residential homes. During this time, architects have been developing increasingly inventive methods of working with this unassuming construction material, shifting from simple stacks to elaborate compositions. Whereas this architectural approach began as a straightforward way to create temporary buildings, Container Atlas seeks out luxurious remote hideaways, urban dwellings, community centers, and more, all showing how the humble container can put the fab into pre-fab.

Architect and Professor Han Slawik and his team have established themselves as international experts in the field of container architecture. He is the author of the first edition of Container Atlas and has returned to the subject with refreshed insights into this burgeoning movement.
