This project explores the formal relationship between an object and its container. Students began by working through the development of three containers each with a different function: storage, reveal, and display. They used these formal design experiments to develop techniques to describe new relationships between interiors and exteriors. The result was the development of a display pavilion on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany. The Vitra campus is comprised of a collection of extraordinary examples of contemporary architecture from a group of international architects. As a “fully operational production site and a field of experimentation for architecture and design,” the Vitra campus is an opportune site to consider the front and back-end of creative production and material fulfillment.
