Container Medical Complex for the Salam Centre by Tam Architecture

I am very used to hear about container projects for housing, etc. But when it comes to realized ones maybe this is one of the best examples I can think of. It's not because the project by itself is great but the fact that they are using abandoned containers from the surroundings to make it cheap and well constructed Its one of the main reasons. Just by watching the video you can get the idea. I also like that idea of blending them with some natural materials as the way the roofs are done.

The cause of doing a medical center in deprive areas is another good reason to take this example into consideration.

These next pictures are also from Tam Architecture but it's a different area of this project (a surgical center). I just want to focus on the use of the materials:
