Shipping containers continue to capture the imagination of designers: now they may just inspire Boy Scouts. The architects at Gensler have just introduced EcoCabin, a sustainable camp dwelling created from recycled shipping containers, right in line with the Boy Scouts' "leave no trace" philosophy.
