Pop-Up Truck Dealership Housed in Containers

A Brazilian franchiser requested a unique and low-cost structure to display trucks imported from Asia.

Londrina, Brazil, is now home to Autobox, a pop-up truck dealership created out of ten red shipping containers–a material whose use we’ve seen cropping up all over. Studio Guiherme Torres designed the facility in response to Autobox’s request for easy construction, low cost and high visual impact. Since the company sells trucks imported from Asia, the use of containers as architectural material references the brand’s geographic reality and the role that shipping and handling plays in its business. The facility was assembled in two hours and final detailing such as painting and electrical work was completed within two weeks.

Autobox has a two year land lease for the site. When that expires, the whole building could be taken apart, loaded onto trucks, transported, and reassembled in another location.
