Discover 5 Public Buildings in South Korea Made Out of Shipping Containers7 of 10

Eight shipping containers that are shifted and cut along a 45-degree angle are combined in a fishbone pattern to create a sculptural, arrow-shaped volume that’s raised almost 10 feet above ground. Designed by New York-based firm LOT-EK, the building serves as an art school near the Hakwoon park pedestrian walkway in Anyang, as well as a focal point and landmark structure for the area.
