New Retail: Raul A Barreneche

In the shopping capitals of the world — Paris, New York, Tokyo, London — the opening of a new flagship store now generates headlines and often a lively architectural debate, as resulted with Rem Koolhaas’s Prada store in SoHo, New York in 2001. Attention-getting shops and shopping centers designed by name-brand architects are at the forefront of new trends in the retail industry. New Retail is a generously illustrated selection of 24 of the most innovative retail spaces built around the world in recent years, designed by such renowned architects as Frank Gehry, Herzog + de Meuron, Rem Koolhaas, and Renzo Piano. Projects included range from flagship stores for luxury clothing designers to department stores and supermarkets, reproduced with generous color photographs and plans
