The containers exhibit, an arrangement of six freight containers on exhibition in the North Courtyard of the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California exemplifies functional art, with the pieces housing a coffee shop, HVAC equipment, and storage space for art center students.

The poor soils at the site presented a challenge for the engineering of all portions of the Art Center project. Caissons were used for new loads in the existing building, but the courtyard soil was full of services crossing between the buildings on either side.
