oh yes, we'd love to see more inspiring window installations like this at stores across the planet. we're talking dover street market's collab with starchitect zaha hadid for its fabulous store in london. it commissioned a site-specific window installation to be showcased in the store during the 2012 olympic games. entitled aqua, the concept references the aesthetics of hadid's renowned aquatics centre in the british capital, depicting a wave of liquid frozen in time. the aqua installation will be on display at dover street market for the entire duration of both the olympic and paralympic games. location: 17-18 dover street [mayfair].
