Pop Brixton consists of workshops, cafes, bars, and exhibition spaces

Carl Turner Architects has created a new destination in South London that features workshops, cafés, bars, exhibition spaces, and an open public area. Pop Brixton was built on a brownfield site of around 2,000 sqm, transforming it into a hive of activity that is home to 53 independent businesses including restaurants, retailers, makers, street food traders, designers, digital startups, a community barbershop, a youth radio station, and a number of social enterprises.

Built from low-cost and low-energy shipping containers, the flexible design approach focuses on sustainability and efficiency. The temporary project is a partnership with Lambeth Council and The Collective, and is currently planned to remain in place until the end of 2018.
