About the project

 

My project starts with the vision of living in a shipping container. I saw my first building out of container in London, Shoreditch in 2008. Since then I dreamed about a own container home. Accordingly, I started to visit different container buildings in Antwerpen, Lissabon, Barcelona, Berlin and Bochum. In summary it can be said, therefore, that the project „CONTAINER HYPE“ started in 2008 through today. I decided to compose a book with my favorite container buildings to show the good points of shipping container.

Facts  about the book

 

In order to make my book into something special, I chose a slightly larger format than the normal A4 Format: 240 mm x 300 mm. This measurement should put me in trouble later, but that was my first matter. I‘ve reduced me to 268 pages, although I could have filled many more pages. I publish two different versions: The standard version with hardcover and hot foil stamping and the premium version with black linen cover, hot foil stamping and white screen printing. For the inside pages I have chosen a 160g/qm-Offsetpapier, as I have planned a black color section. No painted paper may be used for the color section because the color does not hold otherwise. One of the largest design element I use the ASCA-D font by subtype.
