Cargo Architecture

PRESENTED ON JUL 31, 2019
IN DETROIT @ VOL 38

Breck Crandell, Lead Designer + Project Architect for Three Squared Inc, tells us about the resilient reuse of steel shipping containers and how they’re being used as a viable building material for residential and commercial buildings all over.

Three Squared Inc currently has 15 active projects, and Crandell shows us some insight on past projects. He explains why they’re a perfect building material, how they’re changing how we look at building on smaller lots and being ecologically smart about future building material options.
