ibidem Press

This comparative analysis of global shopping centers provides a greater understanding of their influence on urban architecture and infrastructure. The volume identifies the essential characteristics of an efficient shopping center and their adaptation to different geographical locations, drawing a complete portrait of the shopping center sector from the perspective of architecture and urban development.
Very well-structured and worked through systematically. The contribution of this book to current research in urban development is highly relevant. Annette Rudolph Cleff, Technische Universität Darmstadt
The work achieves remarkable feats in scope and depth of the data collected. Mr. Seemann opens the door with his method for future interdisciplinary collaboration with geographers and mathematicians who work together with architects to develop models to inform clients, neighbors, and politicians about possible developments. Martin Knöll, Technische Universität Darmstadt
