Blobitecture at Selfridges, Birmingham, March 2021

Blob architecture, better known now as blobitecture , has been a popular design style since the 1990s. It refers to the overall curvaceous, blob-like shape. The Birmingham Selfridges store is classic blobitecture. Apparently, the shapely design was intended to evoke the female silhouette clothed in a famous “chainmail” dress designed by Paco Rabanne in the 1960s.

  2. I always wondered why it was like that when I was in Birmingham… I just thought they were being quirky!
    My post this week is pushing the boundaries of the blob a little… (but it works for me!) 😀
