Boxpark: The World’s First Pop-Up Mall

The unique temporary shopping hub will be built between Shoreditch High Street station and Bethnal Green Road in London.

Boxpark, the world’s first pop-up mall, is slated to open in August this year on the old Bishopsgate Goods Yard between Shoreditch High Street station and Bethnal Green Road in London.

Designed by London-based Waugh Thistleston Architects, Boxpark will comprise around 60 packing crates, arranged on two levels, with a number of trendy “brands” selling their wares from small retail units, interspersed with cafes to feed and water the grazing flock of shoppers.
