World of Malls – Architecture for Consumption explores a type of architecture that first developed around sixty years ago in the USA and it became a global phenomenon that continues to evolve through to the present day.
Whether Las Arenas in Barcelona, the Fünf Höfe in Munich, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan or the Malibu Lumber Yard – every single indoor or outdoor mall worldwide stands for itself and is a stunning retail and dining destination that reflects its unique place and lifestyle.
From July 14th, 2016 till October 16th 2016 the “Architekturmuseum der TU München” hosts the exhibition “World of Malls – Architecture for Consumption” which features 23 different examples, illustrating the different ways this type of architecture has taken shape around the world, its effects upon the surrounding urban context, and the shopping mall’s often spectacular processes of transformation.
