In 2006, Peter DeMaria, the architect of the southern California, designed a two level container building called "Redondo Beach House", which is the first container building approved by the strict American building code. Aiming at the increasing cost of traditional design, approval and construction process, architect Peter DeMaria hopes to rethink the building materials and components to find a new way of construction. Redondo Beach House combines the container as the building component and the traditional frame structure and prefabricated component, and finally gets a cost reducing building. The transformed container can resist moisture, fire and termite's invasion. It is used as auxiliary space in buildings, while the main spaces for living, workrooms, bedrooms, and living rooms are built of wood or steel structure. The whole building has outstanding performance in saving cost, construction cycle, building resources consumption and so on. The use of containers not only makes the house with a good structural strength, but also reduces the construction work by 70%, thus reducing the waste of construction. The building won the best innovation award of the American Institute of architects in 2007.
