The container project is a large open/enclosed item intended to contain various objects. It has an extraordinary form, function, and design. It is located in every municipality. Around the container exists a whole landscape of buildings constructed to be time-specific and offer new possibilities of use, spaces for experimentation, socialisation, reflection, activism, hope, and new ideas and purposes. The pavilion offers samples of temporary spaces around the Kosovo territory ‘extracted’ from this container of objects, showing that, with a little good will, these objects can be constantly reproduced in everyday life.

C0NTAINP0RARY/C0NTEM0RARY/C0NTAINER. Earth is Home/ The role of urbanization is to create sustainable environments that bond human with Nature and it is part of planetary biodiversity.
Hence, this is the noblest mission of architecture. Global urbanization is in expansion: population growth, constructions of mega-structures (housing, economy, communications, etc.). The process involves countries and societies where every decision—making has a global impact, thus lack of sustainable planning places Earth at risk. The most acute issue is the global warming crisis. We lack the awareness and coordinated actions in order to avoid the effects of climate disaster. Today we learned that no human action can be viewed as individual anymore.
