The Coop is Matt Gibson’s winning entry for the 2009 Australian Interior Design Awards.  Taking out the Retail Design category, Gibson’s entry sits between an experimental installation and a retail tenancy ‘incubator’ – hence the chicken reference.  Meeting Melbourne’s desire to explore casual leasing and retail alternatives, the design attempts to make use of empty access corridors, revitalising ‘dead’ spaces within the city.  With a low cost to construct, the structure itself can be easily modified to suit it’s location and can accommodate multiple retailers at one time.
