Aim Architecture has designed the interiors of cosmetics store Harmay in Chengdu, China.
What does Li Bai, lyrical poet from the Tang Dynasty, architectural brutalism, and a modern-day cosmetics store in a shopping mall have in common?
Translated as ‘the road to shu’, the shudao is an ancient road system connecting central China with the mountainous and rugged southwestern Sichuan. This iconic route, and the many natural and cultural treasures that surround it, is deeply embedded in both the land and Chinese lore. For the Chengdu location, the design philosophy evolved out of this historic context.
