Solar-powered KontererART city is made of reused shipping containers

Categories: Homes / Dwellings

The complex shelters a sandy beach with deck chairs and a big island made of pallets. Located near the river, the project includes a terrace and a rooftop bar that provides views of the surroundings.

In order to provide clean energy for the project, the architects placed solar collectors on the rooftops and designed a green wall that supplies the bar and catering with fresh herbs.

A small solar-powered city popped up in Poland - but it isn't your typical town, because it's made entirely of used shipping containers.

The city was designed by architects Agnieszka Owsiany, Adam Wiercinski, Borys Wrzeszcz as an informal space for exhibitions, workshops and community events in PoznaƄ. The project is part of KontenerART, an annual event dedicated to creating temporary exhibitions and workshops in and around reused shipping containers.
