Bharati Antarctic Research Station by Bof Arkitekten
Bof Arkitekten designed a research station in Antarctica using 134 shipping containers (full disclosure: shipping containers and any way of recycling them or turning them into art are my soft spot). It's so sleek and futuristic that I've include a second image of what it looks like with the southern lights. It's wrapped with an insulating aerodynamic metal skin and can be disassembled. The research station also houses a kitchen, library, and fitness room plus 24 single and double rooms.
