The department store retailer aims for simplicity in its smaller
Salt Lake City prototype By Lauren Mang
If architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe were alive today, he’d no doubt find something particularly striking about he design changes happening inside
Macy’s. “Less is more,” van der Rohe, one of
the founding fathers of minimalist archi-
tecture, once said. And when you step
inside the Cincinnati-based department
store’s latest prototype in downtown Salt
Lake City’s City Creek Center, it’s clear the
design team took his words to heart.

A “less is more” minimalist approach was applied to Macy’s prototype store in City Creek Center in Salt Lake City. The store design reflects
a modern architectural environment that maintains a cohesive connection between various floors and easily translates to other Macy’s stores.
