Consuming Architecture

Edited by Sarah Chaplin, Edited by Eric Holding

This volume looks at developments in retail and leisure architecture worldwide, covering new projects by prominent architectural practices. The contributors present projects which actively revolve around the notion of consumption, and develop discourses on popular meanings of architecture, as constructed through use and participations. They examine, from an architectural perspective, retail sheds, leisure boxes, shopping malls, airports, multiplexes, food courts, entertainment complexes and theme parks.
