Container dining??

Christchurch Post Earthquake pubs, and many fine eateries are popping up built from shipping containers. Very funky

This started in Tauranga however the shipping containers popping up there are not so funky :)

Great idea, being from CHCH. Cheap and functional idea. Maybe leave them in the sea and have a floating restaurant!

Hey these containers can look pretty cool too. Take a look at these examples (courtesy http://designaloud.spaceworks.co.nz/2011/12/container-shops-i-love-them.html)
1. Puma store
2. Housing
3. Mini Shop in Ponsonby
4. Container Shops in Christchurch

Last picture: Apparently the worlds first shoppng mall made from recyled shipping containters is called the Boxpark and is located in Shoreditch, London. There are sixty shops.

reminds me of those places in NZ where you can eat on a train or plane that is no longer in service - except you'd have no view. Need to see some pics of the new trend in Christchurch!

No view? Yes, they do have windows. They are shipping containers, not an icecream container to put your face into and eat from directly:)

I'm not keen on the look of these buildings... they just look cheap.
