Eclectic Curiosity

Posted on October 9th, 2002, by Steve Hardy in Archives, Uncategorized. No Comments

The Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design proposes an open, two-part, ideas competition to envision the future of the mall. This competition challenges the design and planning community to counter the trend towards the deriliction, abandonment, and “death” of the regional mall and invites approaches to rethinking its urbanistic and architectural milieu. The nationwide demise of these large scale retail complexes has been widely documented in recent years, but few compelling proposals have been generated towards their resuscitation and ressurrection. This competition seeks the reanimation of the presumed “dead” and “dying”, reassessing the role these structures play in civic life and the possibilities modification or conversion might provide to communities across America.
