Miu Miu Aoyama
Miu Miu Aoyama is a luxury retail building in Tokyo designed by Herzog & de Meuron. The building exterior features Zahner-manufactured copper bullnose details with dense custom perforations and round zig-zag seams. Zahner also provided the interior copper panels with the same bumped copper aesthetic. The project was developed for Miuccia Prada who leads the Paris-based Miu Miu brand. Located in the Aoyama district in Tokyo, the project is the latest in a neighborhood that has become known for architectural innovation. Across the street is the Prada Tokyo Epicenter also designed by Herzog & de Meuron. The Miu Miu Aoyama represents a stark contrast to the prior work. Its subtle reflective exterior disguises its rich copper soffit and interior.
