The environmental Center of Regenerative Research and Education in Long Beach takes the ISO container as the new "re-purpose" material as an example of future building material systems. The design approach for the eCORRE, a core and sell building, took three basic elements: first, we analyzed the re-adaptability properties of the shipping container as a building element and then proceeded to analyze the qualities of the specific site. Our final application was the implementation of the environmental aspect an practical solutions of each. This solution is intended to teach its visitors and the community about sustainable living.
