Pop Brixton is a vibrant project aiming to revitalize the south London district designed with low-cost, low-energy shipping containers by Cal Turner Architects, a firm known for its work on small-scale projects. The core values of Pop Brixton include sustainability, affordability and efficiency and the hope is that the campus will offer something for those of all walks of life.

The complex aims to make the area more quality of life friendly and currently plans to include a public square, workshop and studio space, living and work units, an event space, as well as retail and cafe space. The space will also offer high speed wireless Internet and will provide plenty of seating to encourage community engagement.

There are also plans for Pop Brixton to include a hotel, restaurants and bars.
