Bureau A Recreates Stonehenge out of Shipping Containers in the Center of Geneva

As part of the first edition of the biennale for independent art spaces in Geneva, Swiss architecture firm Bureau A created "Steelhenge", a recreation of the prehistoric English stone circle built out of 50 shipping containers. Designed as an open air venue that would function as a space for attendees to congregate, the entire structure was built in a day using a crane, with concrete blocks used to add weight to each container, and reinforce their stability. Bureau A's Leopold Banchini told Dezeen, "Containers are a symbol at the new globalised economy; it was also interesting to replace the stones of the original monument by these steel box,"
