Description

For new Fall fashions and back-to-school shopping, ‘pop-up’ retail shops are the hottest trend.  These small, temporary shops are bringing fashion and an urban edge to under-utilized and vacant spaces. This challenge is to design a quickly constructed or prefabricated, free-standing shop of no more than 200 square feet.  

Context

  • Flat-ground, appropriate for a vacant lot, parking lot, or park setting.  
  • Location and design should be appropriate for selling goods. We are looking for a workable concept so permitting/legal vending issues need not be considered, drawing in foot traffic and visibility should be.
  • Location should be selected by the designer. Please specify a location, or locations, as the basis for your analysis

Objectives

  • Provide no more than 200 square feet of product display and sales space.
  • Store should be easy to set up and tear down for one season or product line.  
  • Store may connect to a certain product type or theme. (i.e. shoes, shirts sunglasses, etc..?) or theme (i.e. football fan gear near a pitch).
  • Design should lock up at night.
  • Design should be adaptable to various environmental conditions.

Prizes

  • HP Designjet T790 24” PostScript ePrinter - The winner of this challenge selected by the judges will take home the latest in technical printing technology.
