Container Joy

17 years on the heaving waves, serving The Shipping Corporation of India, now transposed to a dune-side plot, ready for service for three, five, eight years? 

Pure volume of space, 8' wide, 8' high and 20' long, mute but resonant, endlessly adaptable yet utterly fixed.

Double doors at one end open wide to the world, a thick back wall of servant space. Within the bounding steel, no fixings, a temporary and contingent fitting out.

Secure, weather-tightness assured, perfect to store materials as found or as planned, to sort and rack, to prefabricate and transform into a new cabin.

In short, a sheddist's delight!
