Best part? The campus really stayed true to its brand. As Inga Saffron, the architecture critic for The Philadelphia Inquirer said, “[The architect’s] gritty mix of decay and history - accessorised with a few exquisite decorative flourishes - is exactly what the fashion retailer was seeking for its unified corporate campus. Rarely has an architecture and landscape design so thoroughly embodied a company’s corporate identity and aesthetic sensibility.”
The 330-square foot corporate campus took 20 months to design and construct and carried a total price tag of $100 million. At the time, it was considered a risk to move the entire company out of downtown and into an old shipyard. You'll be happy to know that their "pioneering" move actually helped revitalize that part of town, creating 4,000 jobs in the Yard!
