online: shopping architecture now!

offering urban cartography for all you global shopping experts, this publication is right up our alley...and yours! we're talking taschen's new shopping architecture now!, the latest volume in the series. this past decade shops have become true playgrounds of architects and designers alike, and contribute a great deal to a brand's global image and prestige. they've become places of awe, amusement, if not downright worship, in their own right. this book covers the most recent and exceptional retail spaces opened across the planet, ranging from glitzy shopping malls by daniel libeskind and a dr. martens pop-up store to wonderwall's latest design for nike in tokyo, and even that brilliant london newsstand by thomas heatherwick. indeed, the 416-page shopping architecture now! beautifully sums up all relevant retail design.
