Sunday Discussion: Architecture Professor Explains Why Malls Are Dying


Hip hip hooray!  Season three of Stranger Things drops on July 4th on Netflix.  Season three of the show will feature a brand new Starcourt Mall opening.  And back in the 1980’s, malls were the hip thing going.  Today, most malls are very empty and dying.  Thanks to the internet and online shopping, people don’t have to go to malls or retail centers to buy stuff.  One click online, and your stuff ships to your front door.

WIRED’s Emily Dreyfuss talks with architecture professor Ellen Dunham-Jones about mall culture and the fate of dead malls. Hint, zombies.  Enjoy the discussion below!
