Pop-up display allows shoppers in Lisbon to experience a collection of iconic artworks.

Inspired by the cylindrical paint cans used by Warhol in many of his artworks – as well as the infamous soup can – LIKEarchitects built a Temporary Andy Warhol Museum earlier this year in Lisbon using over 1,000 metal paint cans.

The museum occupied the atrium of Lisbon's Colombo Shopping Mall for a period of three months, becoming home to 32 original artworks by the iconic American pop artist.

In an attempt to avoid the normal “sterile” white walls and lacklustre features of a typical gallery, the team from LIKEarchitects took a leaf out of Warhol's book – using some of the everyday objects he was so keen of to bring the space to life.
