It was very interesting to see a lot of "containers" decorated and organised in such a way that create a very nice space with many bars, some shops, etc.
I was wondering if this would be only for summer so I asked in a bar that has the name of the town I was born in, San Sebastian (in basque language, Donostia), www.donostiasocialclub.co.uk (the bar in Pop Brixton) where I was told that initially the project is for at least two years and a half.
It is interesting that in Brixton there is already a wonderful mix of bars and shops in "Brixton Village" (we went to a Colombian bar, where I had a blackberry juice), the market, etc. even very close to Pop Brixton there is another Spanish restaurant-shop where I ate some time ago a very nice "croqueta".
Another thing that got my attention was how there were still several containers outside the space that was opened to the public and also how they were at the same time building other containers to become bars or shops. I was surprised for how the flooring was like a wood that has not been treated, like a building in construction, but at the same time I saw that another bar where they were selling fish and chips, was having tables and chairs decorated in that same way.
Different products, different cultures, different ethnicity, but the same creative spirit to create things and to improve them. Today was a inspirational walk, admiring and enjoying the mix of things. As they say, ideas can be incubated by the 3B´s: Bed, Bath and Bus (while you are asleep, while you are having a bath or while you are travelling). Other ways to incubate ideas, to gain inspiration are walking around inspiring places built by people or by nature, washing up dishes, shaving, walking around the library, relaxing in a park, etc. Not only that, but also enjoying a niece juice, meal or conversation with a friend.
