L’Avenue is the 24-storey commercial development in Shanghai that features a four-storey retail podium, four-storey basement and an office block. Apart from being Louis Vuitton’s largest flagship store, it will also act as a landmark building in the area.

The building is a collaboration between Jun Aoki and architects Leigh & Orange – featuring fluid curves and turns down the length of the building, as well as architectural fins and lighting that succeed in creating a waterfall effect. The structure even has some environmental extras such as the ability to recycle rainwater for irrigation, reduced water consumption and green areas.
