Retailising Space: Architecture, Retail and the Territorialisation of Public Space (Ashgate Studies in Architecture)

Retailising Space - Architecture, Retail and the Territorialisation of Public Space (Ashgate Studies in Architecture)

The traditional spaces of retail, such as city centres and outlying shopping malls, are either increasing in size or disappearing, producing new urban types and whole environments totally dedicated to retail. The creation of these new retail spaces has brought about a re- and de-territorialisation of urban public space, and has also led to transformations in urban design and type of materials used, and even in the logic and ways through which these design amenities meet the needs of retailers and/or consumers. This book describes how the retailisation of public domains affects our everyday life and our use of the built environment.
