    A new flagship store of French fashion house Louis Vuitton has opened on Tokyo's Omotesando Boulevard.

The facade is textured with the use of variously sized wire mesh. Next week writer Mahoko Hoffmann will explain how the novel structure was formed.

Next week we'll look at some of the other honor award winners.
