After the campus lost 20 art studios, Yasuda and her students began the Container Project, a search for new on-campus workspace models that could be translated into other types of studios and dwellings. To counteract the "corridor effect" commonly seen in shipping container spaces, Yasuda and her students joined two containers on an angle, creating a V-shaped studio, and punctured the facade with a pattern of asymmetrical windows.
