Monumental assemblies of constructed steel are almost a trademark for Louis Vuitton shops worldwide. Case in point is the latest construction from UNStudio for Louis Vuitton’s Japan Flagshop store. As Dezeen describes, “The design for the 10 storey (54 meter tall) flagship Louis Vuitton store in Japan aims to establish an architectural equivalent of the identity of Louis Vuitton in which classical and modern qualities are blended, reinforcing each other. The design inspires the visitor with a feeling of being in the House of Louis Vuitton by celebrating the qualities that make up the essence of the company, its products, its history and its future.” (photos via dezeen)
