The making of architectural projects made partly or totally from recycled freight containers is getting more and more common, and added to this, the need for a more sustainable construction is also becoming increasingly necessary. Building on the basic concept that with containers we can create any type of building, we have divided this book in two chapters: equipments for public use and single family homes. Within these two categories, we show a selection of the last creations of architecture studios from all over the world.

Ecological architecture entails multiple factors within the construction process of a home and the impact that construction will have during its life-cycle: from its planning, execution and use until its demolition at the end of the process. In addition, residential ecological architecture takes into account the specific needs of the people who will inhabit each home. The following pages show a wide variety of sustainable and ecological resources: from recouping traditional architectural solutions like cross-ventilation and taking advantage of natural light to new insulation and self-supplying energy systems.

In this book we have presented what we feel are some of the best hostels from around the world, based on a combination of their interior design, comfort and services. Some of them even offer discotheques, terraces, restaurants or reading rooms…. The majority of the establishments shown are located in major cities, although some are in rural settings. There are hostels in historic buildings, such as the old Medical Science University in Amsterdam or a 200 year old Venetian palace, while others are situated in modern buildings or converted houses…but all are locations catering for the many travellers who do not mind sharing a room.

This book explains this new direction in architecture, so that in a few decades what may now seem extraordinary will be commonplace. It is a method to build or renovate close to what may eventually be known as bioconstruction — a building system with recycled or recyclable low-environmental impact materials, or materials that can be extracted by simple processes at a low cost. Let’s take a room-by-room look at the house, from the living room to the bathroom including the garden trying to preserve materials so that they have a longer life. We will give priority to environmental and technological measures in the design phase of a home to save water and energy.

A new architectural trend has appeared, mobile homes which can be transported, some are built on wheels, turning into rolling houses in the most literal sense of the word. Others can be easily carried on a truck and be moved to the places their owners desire. Tiny houses, of less than 20 m2, where the main space is at the same time kitchen and living room, which tend to have a small loft for the bedroom and where there is no place for things which don´t have an essential use, giving their owner the necessary comfort.
