For the establishment of a new outdoor market, the creative community is invited to help design the retail experience through the Urban Commissions programme.
Designers are asked to propose designs for a key component of the market; the multi-purpose retail unit where retailers will be given a dedicated unit as a temporary shop, to display, stock and sell their products.
The winning proposal will be awarded AED 60,000 plus costs of up to AED 40,000 to produce a prototype. Once executed and built, this unit will become the signature identity of the new pop-up market.
A panel of judges from the Art Dubai Group and A.R.M. Holding will look at proposals that best meet the main requirements, with the cost of production being a key factor.
The units need to be moved easily as the market will be located in different locations
The market will be temporary and will pop-up in different locations therefore the units need to be easily unmounted and stacked when stored
Given the temporary nature of the market, the units need to be self-powering by harvesting solar power and using solar panels.
The units need to serve multiple purposes and have the options to accommodate various product categories therefore display furniture need to be quite versatile.
The units need to endure sudden weather changes, from harsh winds to showers.
The units need to be designed to be from 1.5m in length to 4m and be stand-alone independent fixtures with the possibility for them to be connected
The market aims to showcase high quality F&B and craftsmanship and therefore must have a distinctive ‘look and feel’
