Abstract / Description

This document takes the form of a newspaper and documents the work that Architecture Studio 3 at The Cass has done to explore the use of a shipping container to provide shelter for a canoeing club “The Sharks” in Hayes, West London.

All projects illustrated in the newspaper aim to contribute to communities wider than canoeists and the canal, and to provide sites that can contribute to strategic urban development. The work shows how a shipping container can provide a flexible, low cost, robust and easy transportable module. Students continued working with the canoeing club to develop and deliver a shelter for The Sharks in Hayes.

The work of the students and the dissemination to a wider audience has impacted on a housing development by the canal, and lead to the inclusion of a canoe club as a public amenity.
