BoxPark – Art, Culture, Retail and Urban Revitalization

This small group in London is creating a really cool PopUp Mall out of used shipping containers. Talk about modularity! Can you see this approach being used in the trade show industry? http://www.boxpark.co.uk/

      Thanks again for stopping by and taking a look. Matt
