Sample text

All retail architecture may be interpreted as a market medium that allows retail places to suggest different ways of associating products and organize the meeting between buyers and sellers, but, throughout the very short time of the transaction, it also presents most of the different devices of market mediations. 8 Grayson: view from the outside towards the sunken shop window budget, family preferences and so forth). It is probably the capacity of the different architectural settings within the shop to perform most of those different market devices that can explain part of the retail architecture’s efficiency to attract customers and produce economic performance.

The shop makes the market, which is to say that it partly produces the relationship between a clientele and a supply of goods. These two objects are joined by the way it presents products, attracts customers and generally organizes their convergence. In acquiring customers, organizing their movements and trajectories and in encouraging their loyalty, shops suggest modes of choice, not just receiving customers, but actually shaping them. The specificity of the shop lies in its ability as a location (that is, a place apart from what is outside) and as a space (that is, a place that is organized spatially), to bring together three elements: products, customers and markets.
