A shopping centre made of Shipping Containers...Offering Startacus a bit of self starter inspiration

Anyone who watched George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, must have been impressed by Max McMurdo’s eco-office space built from a shipping container.

However taking this innovative approach and design onto an altogether new level is the pop up shopping centre in New Zealand, made out of, yes you guessed it, shipping centre made of shipping containers

Built after an earthquake hit the Christchurch region a couple of years ago, the shipping container concept (now with over 30 spaces) was conceived as a quick fix to the need for shops in the local area.

But it seems that “Re:START pop-up mall” has not only been a quick solution, but has actually flourished and such an innovative approach appears to have given birth to an innovative and interesting landscape, featuring DJs, Arts shows and performances amongst the space.

restart new zealandStill seen as a temporary solution local retailers, this pop-up mall might not be around forever, so if you happen to live or be travelling to Christchurch in New Zealand over the coming months, do take a look and celebrate this innovative approach to dealing with a natural disaster.

Startacus loves this innovative approach to coping with change and we hope that this space inspires others to look at what they too can also achieve with a little thought, inspiration and passion.
