Wave Shelter
Designed by Jonathan  Dowse

From: Chapel Hill, United States
Shelter location: United States
Date accepted: July 19, 2009

This shelter is located on Shackleford Island on the North Carolina coast. It is designed to rest on the sand dunes to prevent erosion and to allow in a lot of indirect light. It uses shipping containers as a primary building material. Shipping containers are great sources of steel, which can be reused for framing, siding, or roofing, and the plywood flooring can be refinished and used for sheathing.
