Foreword

There were countless interesting projects submitted for the Construction Container Facelift architecture competition, many of which dug below the surface to conceptualise some fascinating and intriguing reimaginings of the construction container. However, for this competition the jury chose to focus on those submissions that offered a realistic implementation of a novel solution; those that did not compromise the durability and functionality of the containers in order to redefine their aesthetics.

jury commentary

The Construction Container Integrated Photovoltaics project was a submission from Saule Technologies in Poland, and was chosen as the competition winner for its modern approach that used a high tech solution to improve both the aesthetics and the functional performance of the containers.The new conceived technology would enable a custom-made design to wrap up construction containers in an ornamented envelop, creating a pleasant addition to the cityscape while at the same time generating electricity. The exterior design is applied by ink-jet printed solar cell technology which allows creative designs to harvest solar energy and store it in portable battery stations.

jury commentary

The second place winners were also selected for the BB Green award for their utilization of state of the art technology to blend nature in a concrete and steel jungle. It was chosen by the jury for its simple application and environmentally-friendly solution.Working in several stages, detachable panels and planter boxes are attached to the containers, allowing seedlings compatible with the site’s growth zone to flourish, and allow the inclusion of a green element to a usually stark construction site.

3RD PRIZE WINNER

Project Name

A Container Surprise Austria

jury commentary

The third place entry took an innovative approach, offering two different ways of integrating the container with its environment depending on the time of day. During daylight hours, the container would effectively be invisible due to a complete one-way mirror cover. At night, hidden electro features that are placed between the container face and the one-way mirrors would be illuminated. This would create a place for either artistic light illustrations, or even advertising; offering both a creative and commercial solution to reimaging the containers aesthetic.
