Boombox Micro Retail

Citation of Merit

Firm: Latent Design

Location: Chicago

General Contractor: Formed Space

Boombox is a prefabricated micro-retail kiosk, made from a refurbished shipping container, installed in public space, providing short–term retail opportunities and cultural experiences. It combines successful features of pop–up shops and festival booths, providing transitional space without the capital commitment.

Boombox is the outcome of a vertically integrated development, design and constuction process that included creating new public policy to permit micro-retail structures in the public right–of–way, a first for the city. It is a component of Activate! Chicago, a new creative placemaking program developed between Latent Design and the City of Chicago.
