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.
Initially doesn’t look like much but the fact the container is designed to be moved as well as multifunctional makes this beast ideal for the exhibition market as you can lock everything up securely, pre-wire etc so as soon as it gets to site it jumps up like a jack in the box ready to go. An example of it being utilized is shown below :-
Sends the right message and quick to get the doors open without too many headaches these could be the future of small exhibit stands.
When you look at the photo your probably thinking is this it? In reality though its a lot flasher and modern than it looks in a photograph and would advise watching the video to see why this is a perfect design for venue and entertainment buildings. The Montreal Muvbox Restaurant goes from shipping container to fully functional restaurant in around 90 seconds.
