LOT -EK were among the pioneers of shipping container architecture, and they are still pushing the envelope. For the APAP Open School in South Korea they slice and dice 8 40' shipping containers into an exhibition space, meeting rooms and studios.

At ground level, the footprint of the shipping container structure becomes a public amphitheater taking advantage of the existing sloping topography. The amphitheater lower section connects to the existing stairway and offers a viewpoint along the river edge. The upper section, reaching a higher level, engages the large monitor of the open school for public viewing of the exhibition content.

The plan shows the containers, with their ends cut off. Lots more at Designboom.
