Not Just a Container: A Contest

Geared towards the design and emerging entrepreneurial community, “Not Just a Container” is a competition to re-imagine a recycled shipping container as shelter for art, commerce or agriculture.

The winner will build his/her concept at Dekalb Market, a new community destination coming to downtown Brooklyn’s Fulton Mall in early summer. Dekalb Market, housed in a collection of salvaged shipping containers, will bring together Brooklyn’s creative entrepreneurs in a community setting that will include an incubator farm, food market, events and performance venue, and a collection of eateries and work-sell spaces.

 The goal of the competition is to support the growth of Brooklyn’s creative community by helping a local entrepreneur realize his or her dream of opening a bricks and mortar location and to raise awareness of the Dekalb Market. For more information, visit
