Fun with Shipping Containers

[the Box Office via DesignBoston]

Gradon over at DesignBoston wrote about the Box Office yesterday, an office building in Providence made entirely out of shipping containers and designed by Distill Studio. Between the Box Office and Puma's pop-up shop that graced the Fan Pier last year, it made me wonder what other shipping container buildings were out there.
