More Container Architecture
Alex Steffen, 11 Mar 05

Providing disaster relief and essential services in unstable areas is a field ripe for innovation. One interesting approach? Using retrofitted shipping containers to create what is, in effect, disaster relief in a box.

Here's the latest contribution to the shipping container: the Seattle-based design firm Team HyBrid's mobile triage stations. As Metropolis explains:

The mobile triage stations comprise a 28-foot hinged canopy, cut out of the side of a standard 40-foot shipping container. Patients are interviewed in the front section and treated in the back. Also located at the rear end of the containers are a kitchenette and bathroom, as well as storage space for a generator. There also are places for freshwater and wastewater. The units are so self-contained that “the end user could be off the grid,” says Humble.
