A pop-up shop like you've never seen before

Fashion pop-up beeswax

A glowing example of eco-friendly architecture

Here at Creative Bloq, we've marvelled over the famous buildings to see before you die (opens in new tab) - proving architecture to be one of the most impressive design practises out there. Whilst this little hut might not be quite on par with the huge offerings around the world, it's by no means any less inspiring.

Menswear designer Michael Bastian (opens in new tab) combined forces with designers Bittertang (opens in new tab) on the eleventh popup store installation for Boffo Building Fashion (opens in new tab) in New York City. Bittertang’s design proposal was selected as the winner from an open submission call to architects and designers, giving him just over one week to build the shop.

Using two shipping containers as a starting point, the exterior is created from a few truckloads of hay whilst the interior is made entirely from paraffin and bees wax. It's a glowing example of gorgeous, eco-friendly building!
