In addition to the architectural building industry, the conference includes many of architecture world’s brightest designers, including keynote speaker Michel Rojkind, whose firm worked with Zahner to complete Mexico’s iconic Liverpool Flagship Store, in Interlomas, Mexico.
The conference takes place September 10 & 11, at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Miami, nearby several projects completed recently with Zahner design, engineering, and manufacture. Visit Facades+ to sign up for the conference.
The architecture firm Rojkind Arquitectos won the competition to design the flagship store for Liverpool in Mexico City. Designed and built in just over a year's time, the project's fast-paced process was made possible by digital construction processes and having all contractors and fabricators on-board with the Building Information Model (BIM).The new Liverpool Flagship Store is part of the Paseo Interlomas Mall located in the Interlomas neighborhood of Huixquilucan a suburb of Mexico City. The flagship store was produced to rebrand the chain with a contemporary image for its Mexico City shoppers, in the same way that other flagship stores such as the Neiman Marcus in Natick Massachusetts re-established their contemporary presence using architectural forms.
