BOFFO Building Fashion is back, with a series of three contests in which architects duke it out to create cutting-edge pop-up shops for three famous fashion designers?to be located in one shipping container at the shipping container-filled mall that will be Pier 57, on the Hudson River at 15th Street. Submissions are already closed for Michael Bastian's shop, which will be open November 1-21, but entrants are welcome for trendy eyewear brand Linda Farrow's pop-up. The deadline is July 14, with the victor chosen soon after and the store to be open December 4-24. A 2011 winner created a store decorated with debris from the construction sites and interior demolition projects; last year, Lady Gaga stylist Nicola Formichetti got a mindblowingly mirrored space. What'll they think of next?
