05 POP-UP Music Store Design of a pop-up music store to promote Blue Man Group newest release. The idea is to install deployable/temporary music store in any public interior space anywhere in the world. The store should reflect the “style” of the artist and can be no larger than 8’x 8’x 8’. A space include area for three people to listen music together, two stations for single listening, and selling area.

Ergonomic Studies

Space for the group should be close but with easy access to the place where three people can meet and interact. Group is using also PVC pipes as one of their music instrument which will be great material to build my space. The Blue Man group is viewed as the outsiders to the rest of the world and use of the glass as a wall will help achieve this effect. The space should be closed but with the possibility for others to see inside. The entrance to the space will be thru the sale and display area to allow costumers gather the information before they enter. Adjacent space for 3 people will lead to two single stations. In addition,there will seating space in the bigger area. Single stations will have only standing space.

Floor Plan Artist Interaction - Group Of Three

Music Stream Within The Group

Group as a Vibrant Light

Blue Man Group:

Blue Man Group is a trio, who appear to have blue skin and no voice, hair, or ears. They play a mixture of idiosyncratic, often percussive instruments. They make their own instruments out of unexpected, often very simple materials. Creations used to make this record include air poles, the big drum, the PVC instrument, the backpack tubulum, and the drum wall.

Study Models Store ID and Materials

Pop-Up music store with high energy and visual effects. Participants interact with the space that is colorful and funky but at the same mysterious. Exciting and vibrant space like the group itself , allow for movement and discovery thru touchable and continuous elements of the construction.
