Reworking Our Malls and Retail
1.5 CM / LU Pending
Malls have been a staple of urban life for generations. Today, the retail climate has shifted and made it difficult for them to adhere to their traditional retail models. In this session, Chad Curry will look at what communities are doing to revitalize malls and make them useful again. Chad will look at malls in smaller and larger communities and how they are using them not only to confront the issues around retail, but also how they are using them to support and improve their communities. From urban agriculture to housing and health, communities are getting creative with these spaces.
