Boyle Heights Shipping Container Project Wins Prize

New, 2 comments

Shipping container architecture gets some recognition as local architect Peter DeMaria wins a 2009 American Institute of Architects Design Award for his community center/parsonage house on East 7th Street in Boyle Heights, according to Core 77. The jury looked at 60 other buildings, but chose DeMaria's project, the "first cargo container based community center building in the United States." More about the building here. [Core 77/PR-Net]
