The (retail) world according to SHoP (DBTH)

The (retail) world according to SHoP (DBTH)

When I bumped into Gregg Pasquarelli at the LPC on Tuesday, I asked him about a certain map that had been floating around the Internet a day or two before. The SHoP principal began to fulminate. “That was totally taken out of context,” Pasquarelli said. Turns out it’s a SHoPping map.

“It was one of a series of maps we had made to illustrate the retail landscape in New York and why an anchor store would work so well down there,” he continued. “It has nothing to do with New York as a whole.”

He added that, yes, obviously, it’s an omage to Maira Kalman and Rick Meyerowitz. And he couldn’t help but wonder how anyone got a hold of the map since it was the property of General Growth. Granted, they don’t own much anymore, now do they?
