RETAIL ARCHITECTURE | César Pelli’s Eaton’s versus James Cheng’s Nordstrom

Shades of Cheng: The Nordstrom resdesign contains dashes of PC Memories of the Former Vancouver Public Library (which James Cheng reno’d (as “Robson Central”) for Virgin Records et al. in 1995) and the submission to the Vancouver Library Square Competition he made with Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects and Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership. And that’s a good thing. More balconies for the office workers, though (please).
