Galleries often look for innovative ways to showcase art to new audiences. Pop Up Gallery proposes to turn the white box gallery inside out, literally. A simple kit of parts can be deployed at a range of sites, from parks to city streets, suburban parking lots to local malls. The structure, built with a precast planter brick modular system, allows for various configurations and porosities. Planted with foliage of choice, the exterior can transform based on the environment and climatic conditions (dry, tropical, etc.).

Multiple units in various configurations create multi-directional sidewalks, producing an even flow between interior and exterior spaces. The sidewalk moves through and on top of the gallery structure creating a light-controlled interior gallery and an outdoor public park. Pop Up Gallery provides opportunities for new interfaces between daily life and culture.
