Puma City: A Traveling Modular Store from Shipping Containers

LOT-EK, a mindful and artistic architecture firm in New York, used 24 refurbished shipping containers to create Puma City. The 11,000-square-foot moveable retail and event space that has travelled around the world via the established cargo shipping network.

The building is fully dismountable and included all the necessary elements to meet international building codes, such as plug-in electric, climate consideration, and HVAC system, and it retains ease of assembly and operation.

The structure of the store and the nature of the containers really seems to fit the Puma brand—modern and inventive with industrial respect.
