Pop-up stores created from trash containers and abandoned materials in the Netherlands.

Designers Rikkert Paauw and Jet van Zwieten from the Netherlands, wanted to do something exciting and quirky with abandoned material found around the neighborhood. They created the FOUNDation project where collected garbage is used to build a pop-up store, such as a cafe or bar. Furthermore, the foundation for these compact stores is actually a trash container often found at garbage tips.

The small shops provide a casual meeting spot for the community, where locals can also donate unwanted building items. Three of these ‘dumpsterhouses’ were built for a small festival in Utrecht, and were exhibited for a week during the event.
