In April this year, a partnership of AIA Newark and Suburban and the Young Architects Forum invited international designers to find innovative, visionary and compelling proposals for container constructed multi-family mixed-use project.
The selected site was adjacent to a major train station and walking distance to the downtown major cultural centers of Newark, New Jersey.
The design proposals had to utilize standard height shipping containers 8’-6” exterior height, in either 20’-0” or 40’-0” nominal lengths as the main building block of the structure. These containers could be utilized in any configuration or quantity and could be cut or solid.
The winners and finalists of this international competition have been honored during an award ceremony last week at the New Jersey School of Architecture at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark , NJ.
