As time passes, there are certain things that change about our culture more explicitly than others. For example, no one is surprised to recall that twenty years ago, none of us took videos with our phones and posted them on social media, because the technology we needed to do that basically did not exist. However, some changes occur without us noticing, and when we do, it’s kind of jarring. Take, for example, the shopping mall. Once a staple of the American lifestyle, many shopping malls have closed in the last decade, victims of economic downturn and the preference of shopping online. Once those malls close, the buildings they were in are often destroyed — but in the case of this mall, that simply wasn’t an option. Below, read how one architecture firm took a national landmark (that also happened to be a mall) and turned it into something pretty amazing. It’s not the mall we used to know, but it might be something even better.
