Boxpark

Spitalfields

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

Refitted shipping containers plonked artfully underneath the elevated Shoreditch High Street Overground station make up this contemporary shopping and eating mall. Installed in late 2011, Boxpark is founded by Boxfresh entrepreneur Roger Wade who, with developers Hammerson and Ballymore, has filled the mall with labels like Dockers, Evisu and Nike, book publishers Phaidon and Scandinavian interiors brand Marimekko, and food and drink outfits Chop'd and Crussh – although the inclusion of Bukowski grill and café Foxcroft & Ginger promise a wider breadth of indie brands to come.

Taking up a small corner of The Goodsyard, a 4.7 hectare site running alongside Bethnal Green Road, it seems Boxpark is the first of a series of developments on the former wasteland that could see up to 2000 new homes, office and retail space and leisure facilities.

Curated London

Boxpark is Shoreditch’s achingly trendy pop-up mall: a collection of shops and restaurants in a neatly-stacked pile of shipping containers. They have a series of exhibitions on their upper walkway throughout the year; the latest is by photographer Chris Brock. If you’re in the area, perhaps enjoying some Lao Street Food or attending the monthly Taxidermy Workshop (I said it was trendy) this is well worth seeing.


A finalist for Professional Photographer of the Year 2013, Brock specialises in portraiture, including editorial, fashion and advertising. He displays great flair for dramatic composition, with a dark, brooding feel to much of his work. The work on display here comes from two of Brock’s recent projects: You Should Get Out More and A Swelter of Saints.
