Common Ground

As one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, Seoul has no shortage of shops. But now shopaholics can have a shopping experience unlike any other. The recently completed Common Ground is now the world’s largest shopping mall made completely from shipping containers. The pop-up mall is made up of 200 containers that can be modified and rearranged in any number of configurations.

Not only is the structure itself unique, but so are the shops that can be found in its prefabbed containers. Shoppers are more likely to find a unique assortment of new designers, mid-sized shops, and editorial stores.
