Ever since the Chanel Mobile Art Pavilion levitated out of Central Park, New York City's been missing out on strange temporary structures created with the help of luxury retailers' dollars. Seoul got a Prada Transformer, and now LA has an Hermès pod called H-Box. "The structure, designed by Portuguese architect Didier Fiuza Faustino, will be displaying the work of emerging video artists...The H-Box has been traveling around the world since 2007, when it debuted at Paris' Centre Pompidou, and its OC sojurn marks its only West Coast stop on the tour." Let's hope it heads eastward soon. [Racked LA]
