Press Release Summary: The National Portable Storage Association offers the latest example of how containers offer sustainable solutions to many industries.
Press Release Body: KANSAS CITY, MO. (FEBRUARY 28, 2008) - It\'s been said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. While some municipalities have relegated portable storage containers to \"eye sore\" status, art lovers are appreciating containerized storage for its inherent beauty.
Constructed entirely of portable storage containers, The Nomadic Museum is currently traveling through Mexico City to display Gregory Colbert\'s Ashes to Snow exhibit. The museum is the permanent traveling home of the photographic display. Colbert got the idea for a sustainable traveling museum in 1999. He envisioned a sustainable structure that could easily be assembled in ports of call around the world. Containerized storage was the answer.
\"Containerized storage never ceases to amaze me. Colbert is proving that these structures are dynamic and their uses are up to your imagination,\" said John Finnessy, CMP, Executive Director the National Portable Storage Association, or NPSA, a nonprofit membership association dedicated to the advancement of the portable storage industry. \"Colbert continues to collaborate with innovative architects to integrate the most recent advances in sustainable architecture. I can\'t wait to see what he comes up with next.\"
Colbert\'s first Nomadic Museum was built using 152 steel portable storage containers. The containers were stacked 34 feet high, and relied on recyclable and reusable materials to serve as the structural elements. In one configuration, the container-based museum offered 5,300 square meters of display space to host two galleries and three theaters.
\"The Nomadic Museum may not qualify as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but it is definitely one of the wonders of the container world,\" said NPSA Operations Manager Joel Rathbone. \"The bottom line is containerized storage units are a sustainable solution for many challenges, from shipping and storage to housing and museums.\"
