Container Globe

Container Globe

Detroit, MI, USA

A modern, sustainable interpretation of a renowned cultural landmark.

Reconceiving William Shakespeare’s renowned Globe Theatre, Perkins Eastman designed Container Globe, a green and cost-efficient theater composed of modified cargo shipping containers. Designed to be an ideal venue for historically accurate productions of Shakespeare plays and a home for other cultural events, the theater is comprised of more than 50 containers tied together with scaffolding, greenhouse roofing panels, industrial mesh, and corrugated metal walls fixtures. Both modular and mobile, The Container Globe features a demountable base which allows for it to become a temporary or potentially permanent installation.
