A Polish design studio MOKO Architects an extreme sports venue that will be built on two abandoned concrete silos and a series of shipping containers. A 25 meter twin tower in 12 km from Warsaw’s nucleus will be built during 2015.
One the 25 meter towers will be completely filled with water. On the top people can dress their scuba wear and dive into the depths. In the bottom there is a cave that takes to the other tower. The rest of the other tower will be built for exercising skydiving.
Shipping containers will be used to build additional facilities to support the visiting extreme sportsmen. The containers will be turned into offices, kitchens, hostels, changing rooms, reading rooms, exhibition centers and cafeterias.
This a great example on how environmental conditions can be enhanced by putting used material into reuse. It also shows how already existing structures, in this case silos and shipping containers, can have new applications that many people have never thought before.
A same kind of sports venue could also be built by replacing the silos with oil tanks making the diving section wider. We sell high-quality oil tanks and shipping containers in Shanghai Metal Corporation. You can see details in our webpages. For any inquiries and questions, please use this form.
