A Slate Culture Gabfest segment on the death of the American mall (responding to this article in The Atlantic Cities) got me thinking - might abandoned mega-malls be the next warehouses and power plants for museum and gallery building projects?
Sure, they're not anywhere near as architecturally attractive. But boy, do they have a lot of parking space. After tweeting this little thought, I got sent this article about an American tech company that took over an abandoned mall for its 3000+ workforce, and the website for the Renew Newcastle projects (revitalisation of urban spaces through creative projects and businesses - not quite what I'm thinking about here.)
Also, someone made this lovely promise. Just tell me where to vote.
