Colorful Indonesian Clinic and Library Made from Shipping Containers

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Containerainer. This pretty crap name is actually a fantastic poly-clinic and public library designer by an Indonesian firm of architects. The name for the health clinic and public library is an amalgam of the words "container" and "entertainer". Not quite sure why.

It is however a bold and colourful solution to providing space. The centre is composed of five shipping containers on top of stilts. Containers were selected due to their cost and availability plus the ease of construction.
