The Pop-Up Store in Palm Beach is a temporary gallery designed for the photographer David Drebin. Craig took the existing space, a real estate office in the Royal Poinciana Mall, and transformed it with a High-Low design concept: only certain walls of the real estate office were removed, creating a collage of semi-deconstructed floor and wall textures that contrasted dramatically with the sensuous and decadent images of the client. This is the true Pop-Up nature of a temporary space in a prestigious area—as well as a truly innovative and effective environment in which to sell art.
