Led by Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects in association with Nowhere Resort, the Ex-Container Project provides immediate housing for displaced survivors from the earthquake and tsunami disaster that hit Japan on March 11, 2011.

In using the format of ISO shipping containers as the structure of these homes, the materials are easy to transport and offer a strong and sturdy housing solution at an affordable price. Not only is it for short-term use, but it’s also built as a temporary house that can be easily converted to a permanent architectural structure. These little houses are preassembled in the factory and then brought to the construction site to smartly reduce the working process and fuel supply for tracks and heavy equipments.

The Ex-Container Project is an economical, safe and comfortable solution for Japan’s quake survivors.
