Container Urbanism

We loved the Design Observer piece on Container Urbanism. In addition, to activating public space, providing a home to the burgeoning urban locavore movement, supporting new startup clothiers and temporary boutiques for makers and craftspeople of all types, containers can also be a community space for great new civic ideas to come to life.

Velo City is one such project that raised some of its first funding on ioby and rooted itself in the Brooklyn community with a stall at the Dekalb Market. Photos follow.
