Group K SPECIAL COLLECTIONS POP UP SHOP

Special Collection team sells a small range of items to students such as books, prints and bookmarks. The team has called out for a group of architectural students to help Special Collections create a pop-up shop for the collections, in order for them to present their products better, with the adaptability to expand the range. We are to design in groups a pop-up shop that can be easily transported, selling items around Library and University Campus with the help and guidance from Special Collections team // Download Poster

Messaging all Year 1 and 2 Architecture students. Could you be a member of Group K for Events 2019?

Following the all too brief presentation, we want to share more details on our events project.

Currently, the Special Collections at MMU has limited facilities for displaying and storing the products which they have available for sale. This is where we come in, our goal is to produce a complete set of technical drawings for a Pop-Up shop. It will require duel functionality, housing stock when closed providing compact storage and expanding during the day to display and sell items.

During the two weeks, we will work alongside our collaborator, Janneke Geene, the manager at the special collections to create an innovative mobile shop that has the potential for flexibility in use. We are looking for students who want to enhance their detailing abilities and understanding of adaptiveness within the design which can be transferred into architectural practice. We also want students with an aptitude for ingenuity and inventiveness to create a proposal that can redefine gift shop storage.

More information will follow about the current team. We are excited to see how this project will unfold.
