PSFK visited the innovative Puma City mobile multi-function space at Boston's Fan Pier this past Monday. We first wrote about Puma City in December, and the winner of the 2009 Travel + Leisure Design Award for Best Retail space lived up to our expectations. To recap – Puma City is a three level indoor-outdoor structure, constructed out of 24 steel shipping containers. Designed by architectural group LOT-EK, the building acts as a store, lounge and mobile home base at different ports around the world for the Puma Volvo Ocean Race sailing team. The structure is designed to be easily taken apart, shipped and reassembled anywhere in the world.
