World of Malls

Architecture of Consumption

Edited by Andres Lepik, Vera Simone Bader. Text by Anette Baldauf, Regina Bittner, Setargew Kenaw, Richard Longstreth, June Williamson, et al.

World of Malls explores a type of building that was invented in the United States nearly 60 years ago and quickly spread throughout the world. Because of urban planning’s increasing orientation toward the automobile, the mall became a substitute for lost urbanism. But what direction is the development of the shopping mall taking today? On the one hand, there continue to be spectacular new openings in America, Asia, the United Arab Emirates and Europe. At the same time, however, many malls are empty, and some are being converted and repurposed.

There is hardly any other building typology that is currently being discussed with such controversy: does the shopping mall mean the death of the city, or does it stimulate its revitalization? In their essays in this volume, urban planners, economists and architectural historians such as Anette Baldauf, Bob Bruegmann, Dietrich Erben, Richard Longstreth, Alain Thierstein, June Williamson and Sophie Wolfrum examine the transformation processes of the shopping mall from the 20th to the 21st century.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

We Make Money Not Art

Regine

I liked this book so much i almost want to drop my computer right now and go to a shopping center just to look at it with new eyes. World of Malls is full of brutalist sublime, of insightful observations about the way we live and consume today but best of all, it is also full of fascinating stories…

Baunetz

Dina Dorothea Falbe

Drawn from around the world, the examples presented illustrate a surprisingly wide spectrum of viewpoints, ranging from the mall as investor's paradise (whether successful or failed), to revitalized urban space, to built social utopia.
