The brief for Retail of Tomorrow was to design a retail store that redefines the traditional market prototype in today’s changing times. The architectural concept for a shop that brings back the lost ritual of buying that improves upon the deficiencies present in the trade process recovers the lost human senses of a buyer, provides the possibility to sense all properties of the good, and cohesively includes such possible solutions.
