NewPark Station wins Live the BOX competition

Felix Heidgen and Thomas Nagy from Princeton, New Jersey have won Live the BOX with the scheme NewPark Station . The competition by AIA Newark and Suburban and the Young Architects Forum looked to find "innovative, visionary and compelling proposals for container constructed multi-family mixed-use project". The use of shipping containers is not an entirely new design invention and has been used as a space for displaying art and architecture for several years now. Recently Art Basel Miami used them to present the Art Positions - Young Art by The Beach however in this case the construction material is a great starting point for the architects who have created a scheme with the local community and keep their real needs in mind.
