KOOP architecture + media and RSCP think outside of the box in the Rustbelt
KOOP architecture + media, authors and moderators of the Residential Shipping Container Primer, are designing a 36-room boutique hotel in the Eastern Market district of Detroit! We're excited for this opportunity to give old steel boxes new sheen, in a building meant to contain the needs and talents of locals and tourists, kids and adults, makers/artists and their markets. Over the coming months, we'll blog often and in detail about this exciting project, inviting you to think outside the box about real estate, local economic development, pre-fabricated construction, recycled building materials, welders, community organizing, B corporation status, barriers and entrypoints to regulatory change, and more.
