Tim music festival,Marina da Glória,Rio de Janeiro - shipping container music festival

Bernardes Jacobsen was tasked with making the Tim Music Festival which is an annual event held in Marina da Glória, Rio de Janeiro a more sustainable and environmental event. I have worked in the exhibition industry before and the wastage at concerts and shows is astronomical so its good to see something being done in a positive light. The Tim Music Festival is an annual event which also makes sense in making it sustainable and reusable by using shipping containers. The shipping containers were utilized to give an interesting colourful display as well as a functional medium for the venue.

Los Angeles home utilizes grills for shade– concept for shipping container home

second skin home, cooling grills for house

This unique home is sitting on the steep slope of Crestwood Hills in Los Angeles. 3,700sq ft. the Jovanovich dream home was developed on existing buildings adding to it sustainable and progressive design and construction methods.

Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects were the guys behind the project, adding a second skin layer to the buildings added an assisted shade that protects the building from Californian sunshine and also works to reduce heat build up in the home as well as offering a privacy screen.

An idea that can also be utilized for shipping container homes to help keep the heat out. Either directly or in a canopy form. Not a shipping container home in design but its the grill concept that I found interesting.
