The aim of this project is to reuse shipping containers. We try to develop a self-sufficient and zero emissions building with the incorporation of passive and active designs for each type of building. The main objective is to recycle the containers that are no longer used in the commercial port and convert it into a cosmopolitan block of steel and a possibility of sustainable architecture. This proposal will be adapted to an existing master plan based on real criteria as their environment, economic viability, social, and cultural space.
