Re-visioning the Strip Malls
StudioPOD Design Pvt.Ltd
Design Competition, Winning Entry
Our proposal envisions an adaptable and retrofitted future for the typical existing “strip mall” transforming it from an outdated retail experience and repetitive architecture relic into a dynamic architectural icon.
The strip development is a widespread remnant of a 20th century car-centric city that is losing value both in real estate as well as local ecology. Our vision focuses on making the strip into a 21st century neighborhood destination that celebrates sustainability while embracing the micro- culture & local identity.
The proposal envisions a place that focuses on food security, inclusivity, community participation and future readiness. A place that is built on these four principles of Grow, Play, Community and Support.
