There are malls that we pass by each day, never really patronized by many, but surround our everyday lives- we call them “dead malls”. In contrast to the carbon-copied large scale malls, there are often specialty stores, or communal stores that establish close relationship with its patrons in the nooks and crannys of the dead malls. It is exactly this environment that provides an opportunity of affordable rent for these small, local stores’ survival.
The tour invites participants to explore how the dead malls manage to adapt and remain relavant in the ever-changing landscape; also, to reflect their true values. We also call for participants to support local stores in these dead malls- they characterize and help maintain community relationships in the face of hypercommercial driven society outlooks.
As the guided tours are comprised of comprehensive details, interactive elements, and presentation skill – the website can only provide abstract of the tours, hardly able to capture it in full.
