Without the shipping container, a modern age of trade, and a whole genre of contemporary architecture would never have come into being.

Today is the shipping container’s birthday. It should be celebrated with fireworks from China, candy from Japan, and wine from France. Preferrably anywhere the shipping container has transformed – so really anywhere. From Lahore to Lagos to Long Beach to London, find a nice spot (with a view of shipping lanes if possible) and toast to our corrugated friend of commerce.
