Self proclaimed “Shipping Container Architects,” Boxman Studios, have teamed up with marketing agency Advantage International and Hyundai to bring modular, prefabricated architecture to pre-game parking lots across the country. Consisting of three shipping container units, the 1500 square foot Hyundai Field House will be traveling to 25 different college campuses to provide a flexible environment for tailgating festivities. The custom-built containers were crafted from recycled materials and outfitted with bean-bag chairs, barstools, couches, and six HD monitors. The structures’ modular design allow them to be adapted to various campus climates and grounds, from Texas to Ohio, as well as the branding of each team. Each of the three units can function independently, or work come together in a variety of forms to suit their environment.

Boxman Studios, the company that pioneered the shipping-containers-turned-housing trend back in 2008, is now embarking on a whole new shipping container revolution. As part of their sustainable building efforts they are adapting decommissioned containers to enhance already complete buildings and even stand alone as pop-up shops, venues, restaurants, transit stations and more. It was with the real estate crash of 2008 that Boxman founder, David Campbell, re-imagined the use of decommissioned shipping containers. The idea soon caught on and customized shipping containers are now seen as a major player in tactical urbanism and sustainable practices in cities across the globe. Boxman Studios has specialized in adapting shipping containers for an array of uses including events and trade shows, which are ideal for shipping container re-use as they are temporal locations. Shipping containers can be easily situated, outfitted and removed, and used again. To oversee Boxman Studio's jump from private housing to urban infrastructure they partnered with sales director Jim Curtis. The company’s growth coincides with their move into a 65,000 square foot space in Charlotte, North Carolina. Their new facility allows them to contain all aspects of these sizable operations in one space. “We can easily scale as needed,” said Campbell. “Launching into container architecture of the Built Environment was a logical step for our company.” They have since built pop-up venues and permanent additions for clients such as Nike, Google and Whole Foods.
