Designing for the future: retail destinations 2030 and beyond
In March this year, we joined forces with the Architects' Journal to launch a new and exciting architectural competition, asking what retail destinations might look like in 2030 and beyond.
From a broad range of entries, capturing everything from sustainable design, to diversification of use and innovative tech, we shortlisted 12 practices who presented their ideas to an expert judging panel. The six finalists then joined us to take part in a creative charrette session, exploring how their ideas might be brought to life as part of our portfolio.
Jo Francis, Head of Retail Operations for our Regional portfolio, reflects on the competition and how forward-looking designs can shape the retail future.Find out more
