Selfridges scraps FOA store plans

  • Comment

The new owner of Selfridges has shelved plans for a series of landmark stores across the UK.

Selfridges chief executive Peter Williams has announced it is scrapping plans to employ Foreign Office Architects to design a new store in Bristol.

However, Williams insisted that the new Canadian owner - the Weston Family - is keen to press ahead with Toyo Ito's secret designs for a store in Glasgow.

FOA founding director Farshid Moussavi said she was unsurprised to hear the news. 'They had approached us with the project, ' she told the AJ. 'But when the owner changed recently they said they were going to review the investment strategy.

'We have not heard anything since and we had not started designing the scheme yet, ' she added.
