Tony's Organic Farm Has a New Shipping Container Visitor Center in Shanghai

is located just outside of Shanghai to the southeast and is the largest organic vegetable farm in the area. To provide better service to its customers and create a closer connection to the food, they built a new welcome center in 2011. Built from 78 recycled shipping containers, the welcome center houses offices, courtyards, a lobby and reception area, store and connection to the packaging warehouse. The 1,060-square-meter (11,400-square-foot) center will also serve as the lobby to a new hotel, which will be the next phase of development. The arrangement of the containers creates shady protected zones and quiet spaces rooted in traditional chinese typologies and a deep understanding of the climatic requirements of buildings.
