Music Boxes

A melodic adventure for children ages 6 months to 7 years.

A mini city of shipping containers kitted out as miniature performance spaces, specially adapted recording and animation studios or interactive installations allowing the very young to explore a fantasy world of sound and music

78 containers are stacked up to three high in an irregular pattern to create an elliptical, enveloping shape, to replicate the geometry of sound.

The design captures the spirit of the shipping container as the ubiquitous tool of world trade and a true 20th century icon, with canopies evoking sails, wire rigging and tarpaulins.
