'Contained' is a study of inhabited, working buildings which have been created using rigid metal cargo carrying structures. Ever increasing global mass-consumerism has led to the surplus of millions of abandoned shipping containers. Many architects and developers are addressing this problem, by creating innovative and characteristic working buildings at a cut price for the client, almost entirely made from these dis-used containers. These permanent and semi-permanent structures are the result of thinking outside the box. Enclosed space for material goods in transit is now space for living, learning, business and play. Growing demand for material goods gives way to an ever increasing demand for buildings at a low cost. Stephen is interested in the visual marks the buildings hold in terms of transience, function, adaption, and the space as shelter.
