From the architect. In each of the 200mm x 600mm boxes, one by one, sneakers are carefully collected. The boxes are repeated, and offset by half unit on each level, and carried through repeatedly over an entire wall. Something which has little meaning on its own, when repeated 281 times over, creates an euphoric effect for one to experience a heightened emotion.

The merchandises neatly displayed in the fashion similar to the museum artefacts; through touch panels centrally located within the shop, one can gain further understanding of the background stories of the merchandises. Although there is really no such field of study as “sneaker-ology”, by placing our design focus on ways to correctly understanding the merchandises, it is for us an attempt at capturing “sneakers” in a scholarly fashion.

Architects elevate merchandise display to a cerebral discourse- what do you think of the design and the shopping... http://fb.me/UcShHOig

Kind of iffy. The sneaks are overshadowed by the design. It's as if the sneaks are in the background. :|

The choice of materials and overall aesthetic feels seems great.

Yet from the photos I get the feeling that I would be really overwhelmed by a huge uniform wall with checkered lighted fields. I guess picture can't really express the light how people experience it but I would like it the room to be little toned down (perhaps had some top down lightning) than what we see here
