When BIG meets Galeries Lafayette in an old art-deco bank good things happen...
BIG recently completed a renovation of the Champs-Élysées department store in Paris. They did it with their urban approach while still respecting and complimenting the original interior. In this article Bjarke Ingels puts wise words on humans and retail:
"We humans are social beings and more than ever do we need a forum for collective intimacy, where we can't just get what we want by clicking on it, but where we can engage with others in urban environments that are visually and physically stimulating to all the senses."
