The modern day shopping centre is so entrenched and so familiar a building form in most countries in the world, particularly the developed nations, it is hard to believe they did not exist in the living memory of those who today are sixty years or older. While this new way of shopping brought convenience, variety, comfort and a new shopping experience, the repercussions from its almost overnight infiltration and takeover from the retail experiences of the past were realized too late.

In the last 20-30 years, there has been a growing concern in regard to mass consumption and its impact on our planet. As temples of mass consumption, will the modern day shopping centre be able to adapt itself effectively for a sustainable future or will it die as swiftly as it appeared?
