We've seen a lot of shipping container architecture over the years and its no surprise that the concept is finally finding a home in Brooklyn. The Dekalb Market will be housed in a collection of salvaged shipping containers and include food vendors, work-sell spaces, an incubator farm and a performance venue.

Dekalb Market announced their Not Just A Container Design Competition and the winner will not only get a budget to build their design, but will also be awarded a contract at the Dekalb Market to work 6-months, rent-free! Deadline is April 9th so get more details about the competition after the jump.KEY CRITERIA. Design Quality, Sustainability, Community Impact, and Entrepreneurship.
SUGGESTIONS. Uses for the space could be, but are not limited to: a farm structure, store, art installation, work-sell space, restaurant, sports and music venue.
