Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Retail is a breakthrough exploration of the relationship between consumer culture and architecture, showcasing the creative collaborations between global brands and their architects. Over the past decade, retail architecture has taken center stage in contemporary design discourse, and Retail is a unique tour of the venues for the universal pastime of the twenty-first century: shopping.

Among the world-class architects and globally recognized brands featured here are: Rem Koolhaas and OMA (Prada, New York, Beverly Hills, and San Francisco); Frank Gehry (Miyake Tribeca, New York); Herzog & De Meuron (Prada, Tokyo); Tadao Ando (Armani Teatro, Milan); Renzo Piano (Hermès Ginza, Tokyo); Future Systems (Selfridges, Birmingham); Richard Gluckman (Helmut Lang, Paris, Milan, and New York); and John Pawson (Calvin Klein, Paris).

Book News Annotation:

Aiming to attract customers away from online shopping sprees, architects and interior designers rise to the challenges posed by the virtual world to construct ever-more dazzling and stylish "brick & mortar" stores. Architecture writer Luna provides an introduction summarizing the recent history of commercial structures, and he offers some explanatory captions; but this oversize volume (9.5x12.5<">) consists primarily of full-page color photos of 35 projects in Europe, Asia, and the Americas selected for their magnitude and originality.
