Environmental education center built out of recycled materials:

An LA-based design think tank called APHIDoIDEA has an idea about how to build an environmental education center that practices what it preaches.

It would have classrooms, offices, an exhibition hall and a public plaza. Here's the cool part: the building would be made of 65 shipping containers.
