The architects’ José Selgas and Lucía Cano’s work, El Batel, was made to look like a container. An excellent idea, as the building is located in the port of the Spanish coastal city of Cartagena, where loads of containers are brought to the city by boat. What Selgas and Cano couldn’t predict is that when the citizens of Cartagena saw this rectangular, plastic, multicolored frame, they would name it ‘the tupperware’.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
