The architecture of Big Box retail has always been about familiarity and efficiency—only considering the short term impact it has on people’s lives. During the 1970’s and early 1980’s one retailer dared to be different, intermingling unconventional architecture and modern art with the suburban shopping landscape. Best Product Stores and Site Architects were the creators of these decidedly nonconformist store designs. The buildings are not only a testament to the vision of the architects, but to a client relationship that allowed for something groundbreaking. These spaces made people stop and stare, sparking a sense of wonder for the shopping public. Who will dare to go there next? A Herzog and de Meuron store design for Target?
