Urban Space presents ‘NOT JUST A CONTAINER’, a competition to uncover the most creative and innovative use for a shipping container to be located in a downtown Brooklyn retail location.
Geared towards the design and emerging entrepreneurial community, “NOT JUST A CONTAINER” is a competition to re-imagine a recycled shipping container as shelter for art, commerce or agriculture.
The winner will build his/her concept at Dekalb Market, a new community destination coming to downtown Brooklyn’s Fulton Mall Early Summer. Dekalb Market, housed in a collection of salvaged shipping containers, will bring together Brooklyn’s creative entrepreneurs in a community setting that will include an incubator farm, food market, events and performance venue, and a collection of eateries and work-sell spaces.
The goal of the competition is to support the growth of Brooklyn’s creative community by helping a local entrepreneur realize his or her dream of opening a bricks and mortar location and to raise awareness of the Dekalb Market.
