Obento and Built Space

Obento and Built Space: Japanese Boxed Lunch and Architecture examines the material and social culture of bento boxes and how they inspire architects and designers to think about the potential of emptiness, craft, portability, and sustainability. Using miniature environments that individuals carry with them as a touchstone for good design, we explore formal and experiential principles. We share the story of one manufacturer of bento boxes and the art of making a carefully crafted boxed lunch in relation to the recipient, to the season, and to the maker's intent.
