Future Systems partner Amanda Levete describes the building design for the new Selfridges store in Birmingham as ‘organic, curvilinear, fluid… and sculptural’. Unveiled this week, the consultancy’s design takes advantage of the site’s steep slope, with entry points on four different levels. ‘We started to see the envelope of the building as a skin,’ says Levete. Inspired by scales, chainmail and sequins, it is comprised of loose discs. The vast atrium at the top will allow natural light deep into the store, which is due to open in autumn 2003. Interior designers are yet to be announced.
