Popmusik-up architecture makes the most of tiny spaces and intimate experiences. As temporary structures, pop-ups are nothing new, dating back at least to Roman times as temporary stages for festivals called .

From structures for community gatherings to emergency shelters, pop-ups encompass a range of programs. As Marni Epstein-Mervis notes, “we can visit pop-up amusement parks, shop at pop-up stores, eat at pop-up restaurants, and stay at pop-up hotels.” While they may go by different names, from temporary pavilions to flash retail, pop-ups share common qualities of scale and impermanence. Exploring the relationship between materials, structure and spatial experience, the following projects look at small-scale architecture through the lens of pop-up design.
