internationally recognized architect zaha hadid has just shared with us images of her latest ‘shop in shop’ store concept for the high-end apparel retailer neil barrett. located in seoul and hong kong, the shop in shop scheme creates a display piece in each location that is a single piece of a much larger artificial landscape cut into modules that are installed into each of the stores. while each structure is a standalone object, each componentlike each branch, is an individual unit of one larger host. the sculptures are highly flexible and customizable to each location, used alone or in conjunctionto dictate the circulation and set up a unique interaction with the shopper. their stark white skin covering the various twists and folds stands out as a sculptural object within the dark walls and floors of the company’s aesthetic.
