    Jon ANTHONY: As our methods of storing grow, our storage environments tend to not adapt.

    As our methods of storing grow, our storage environments tend to not adapt. ‘Rethinking Stuff’
    addresses the complex nature of ‘stuff’ in our constructed environments by leveraging the latent potential of it in storage today. This thesis attempts to address the effects of stuff in storage by capitalizing on the notion that stuff is increasingly challenging notions of property, ritual,
    temporality, accessibility, and materiality.

    As Peter Smithson mentions in his article In Praise of Cupboard Doors, “rarely in architecture is the
    right level of attention – the sense of fit – to do with the individual and his/her specific
    possessions.” No longer a secondary element of a larger architectural conversation, the stuff we store will be exploited, celebrated and embraced.

    Through the re-imagination of familiar storage environments, (the shed, the lost and found bin and
    the junk drawer) ‘Rethinking Stuff’ becomes a narration of possible spatial storage futures.
