The pop-up trend gets bigger with Boxpark, a pop-up shopping mall slated to appear this August in London’s Shoreditch area. Made of 60 shipping containers, the two-story mall will reside temporarily at Bishopsgate Goods Yard, an old railway site that’s been unused for almost half a century, and won’t be developed for a few years yet. (Many thanks EW.)
Conceived by Roger Wade (creator of the Boxfresh brand and Brand Inc.) Boxpark will house over 50 hand-picked independent fashion, arts and lifestyle brands, plus galleries and cafes. Space is offered by invitation only.
