This beautiful college campus in Thailand built with 17 Shipping Containers is one of the best examples of sustainable architecture


The International Sustainable Development Studies Institute located in Chiang Mai, Thailand is made with 17 Shipping Containers that were carefully selected & imported from ports of Bankok, Thailand. While sustainability was a major goal via this design, they wanted to compliment it by creating a space that had a natural connection with the environment.
