I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it…. woh woh ohh oh! Oh no, I won’t be able to get that song out of my head.
But on a serious note now, the newest Marc Jacobs store is about to open in Aoyama, Tokyo.
The Architecture Office responsible for this wonderful building creation is Stephan Jaklitsch Architects, in fact they are THE designers of all MJ stores world wide. And this particular structure has already received raving reviews and awards such as the Award of Excellence for AIA New York. They must have been inspire by a night lamp or something, because it really looks like a lamp I used to own, but of course the design is a little more intriguing than that of a lampshade.
If you look at the facade cladding details you’ll understand just how much engineering goes into designing buildings these days, no more hammer and nail jobs.
I can’t wait for the opening of the store Dec 4th, be sure to make a note in your diaries Ladies and Gents. With a little bit of Luck Marc Jacobs himself will be there… one can dream!
As it’s right next to the Prada store (one of my favourite buildings in Tokyo which I’ve visited countless times to admire the glass facade) by Herzog and De Meuron it’s sure to get some comparisons from the design press worldwide.
