Abstract

Abandoned: Shopping malls' definition in 2021. Once a magnificent symbol of suburban sprawl, now left in crumbles to die. This thesis project aims to make the mall relevant to people's lives by repurposing its buildings as part of a mixed-use complex. Beginning with a study of the shopping mall's history and New Urbanism concepts, I propose that a mall is not just a public place for gathering, sharing experiences, and building memories but also a reflection of a neighborhood's identity.
