Project 279 Selfridges Birmingham, Birmingham (1999) - realized
The department store Selfridges in Birmingham is the largest building implemented by Future Systems. It is an almost amorphous shell covered with 30,000 aluminium discs. The light enters the building through the central atrium which also houses escalators. It has since became a landmark of the city, a fashionable meeting place and a remarkable architectural intervention into the fabric of industrial british city.
