Freight containers converted into a contemporary piece of art space, the Platoon Kunsthalle, Berlin

Contemporary-Architectural-Design-Berlin-Germany-07

Berlin-based architects and interior designers Graft Lab have designed the awesome Platoon Kunsthalle project. Completed in 2012, the freight container has been given a modern twist and converted into an architectural showstopper. The contemporary structure has been designed to host art projects, workshops and events.

The contemporary freight container is designed as an experimental space for artists and creatives, and for the members of the Platoon Network. The Kunsthalle hosts various art projects, workshops, and events. It also presents a multitude of creative and artistic projects that clash with the regular art-institutions.

The Platoon Network Kunsthalle in Berlin is a place to develop and test professional, contemporary creativity. It has been said that it will not be a classical, white-cube-type art installation, but rather a creative platform for subculture: events, exhibitions, workshops, lectures and discussion for urban street art, graphic design, performance, fashion, digital art, music, film, club culture and political interventions.

The modular architecture consists of 34 standard freight containers.

The previously established Kunsthall by Platoon in Collaboration with Graft in Seoul, Korea, received the Korean Architectureprize 2009, the RedDot Award 2010 and the Designprize of the Federal Republic of Germany 2011.

Adelto seriously loves the creative design behind this – who would of thought a freight container could be so cool and contemporary – only in Berlin!
