An exciting new project in Detroit will use recycled shipping containers to create an innovative new community space that will be used to bring back the art of storytelling. The plan calls for two phases of construction. The first will cover a community lobby called First Container, which would later be joined by phase two, a shipping container space and hotel called Collision Works. Both projects will re-enliven Detroit’s Eastern Market area, inviting locals and visitors to reconnect and share stories, while encouraging community programming in the shipping container complex.
