Let's talk shop!

Explore the world's most innovative and and exciting boutiques

Shops are the one place where the stars of the world of architecture, from David Adjaye to Rem Koolhaas and Zaha Hadid encounter the people who make the world of design turn, from Jurgen Bey to Tom Dixon, Ingo Maurer, or Philippe Starck. This book is full of the most recent retail spaces in the world, ranging from astonishing shopping centers by Daniel Libeskind or the young Swiss firm HHF to interactive store windows or a tiny jewel-like chocolate store in the heart of Paris. A pop-up store for Dr. Martens shoes, a unique newsstand designed for London by Thomas Heatherwick or flagship stores for the likes of Armani, Balenciaga, or Joseph are all part of what makes Retail Architecture one of the most exciting and dynamic areas of contemporary creativity. Apple computers, Uniqlo clothes, or Nike shoes can all be found here in a spirit of perfect harmony with the best that today’s architecture and design can offer. Books, jewelry, fine foods and handbags are glorified and amplified by glass, steel, and the latest, most sophisticated techniques in design and branding. This is where Peter Marino meets Karl Lagerfeld, and where Yoshioka Tokujin breathes life into Hermès scarves. Ephemeral by design in many cases, Shopping Architecture Now! is also the place where the makers of dreams find a solid home.
