Here are some images that Leigh and I have found on pop-up bars/ shops using solely recycled or upcycled materials. Majority of the examples above are made of recycled wood, pallets and cardboards. These are some good starting points as we intend to create a space based on materials that can be easily found in Manchester. Newspapers and flyers are the prior resources that are being considered, however this requires some deeper considering as the space will be used as a bar which makes waterproof the essential quality in our designs. Here are some images that Leigh and I have found on pop-up bars/ shops using solely recycled or upcycled materials.

Week 1 Unit X

We are assigned to research on the use of teepee space of the Manchester International Festival. Since we haven’t yet a sponsor, we are encouraged to upcycle ‘useless’ furnitures/ objects. Leigh and I are responsible for the research on similar spaces (used as a bar) in other events/ festivals and to get in touch with the teepee’s management firm, eartotheground. 

I began by looking into how marquees/ tents are functioned in similar events and festivals; I also looked for different approaches to a pop up bar/ shop concept using existing materials. Wooden pallets and beer/ wine barrels are found to be commonly used.
