From the architect. Lunar pop-up store is a modular system design for a pop-up store that hosts products for daily life on the Moon it is commissioned by a private European art institution.

Being Shanghai its first location, the store is expected to pop-up in Rotterdam, Barcelona, Tokyo & New York in the coming future.

This 114 cubic meter fractal ephemeral construction is the result of a 3dimensional aggregation of 20 modules of 5,7m3. Each module will contain a different product topic and the final aggregation system will be adjusted accordingly to each final location.

The lack of any Cartesian reference forces the visitor to move through its interior in a very specific manner, triggering human behaviors that better fit 0-gravity.
