Set Up Your Office Wherever You Please With This Pop-Up Studio
Will London always be a bustling world capital of art and design? With rent, property and education prices soaring, creative industries in the city have been hit hard. Luckily for us, architects Tomaso Boano and Jonas Prišmontas set out to find a solution which comes to us today with these affordable pop-up studios.
The mobile workshops, named Minima Moralia, allow you to set up your own office space anywhere you like – the creative pair even suggest hitting disused yards and wastelands across the capital to avoid paying rent entirely.
Unveiled during the London Festival of Architecture 2016, the steel structures are fitted out with translucent walls which can be folded out to take your art studio al fresco.
Speaking to Dezeen magazine, Tomaso Boano explains:
"We believe that creativity should not be linked to a social status. It exists and flourishes inherently within people, and therefore anyone should be granted the opportunity to investigate, experiment, rehearse and play. To do this, we need more affordable spaces.
Minima Moralia is more than an architectural installation, it's a programme to target abandoned or misused spaces, effectively bringing life and creativity into them."
The first model sat atop Dalston Roof Park throughout the month of June, inviting any local artists to come and make use of the space. This was, however, just a prototype.
Fingers crossed the pop-up offices make it onto the market soon.
