Abstract


This article aims to present a proposal recently designed by students of the Architecture and Urbanism Course of the Federal University of Santa Maria Campus of Cachoeira do Sul in an international competition of architecture and design promoted by the portal Volume Zero, “UnBox 2017”, wich proposed ways to creatively rethink the discard of containers in the contemporary world. The final result was punctuated by a distinguished architecture value, especially due to the flexibility of its program and its deployment location. However, its highest value is its social importance: the materiality is mainly composed of reused elements - containers and plastic drums (chosen precisely because of its reusable character, just as containers) -, making it environmentally, socially and economically sustainable. Another pertinence factor to be explored is the resulting knowledge to the students through the participation in competitions of architecture and design. Therefore, the practice of participation in competitions that stimulate creativity, innovation and the search for tools for sustainable development is considered totally positive.
