Abstract

Issues of containment are central to the practice and discourse of interior architecture whether the constraints be physical, financial, cultural, political or social.

The container as architecture suggests applications of shelter, defined property, security, privacy and ownership although often these boundaries become somewhat blurred. This suggests a further breakdown of space accepting issues of transferral, thresholds, easements; where the issues of public and private are raised.

Design of packaging is based around similar concerns of containment. The relationship between object and receptacle or vessel having its origins with the hand and parts of the body used to hold or conceal personal belongings.
