Students in Mrs. McKay’s Human Geography course are grappling with the challenge of conceptualizing the shopping center of the future. Below is a photo sure to drop a few jaws (it certainly made mine drop) of a shopping center in Sweden designed by Gert Wingardh that is scheduled to open in 2009. It was featured on a blog by David Carlson that I ran across while putting together a project guide for the assignment. This example illustrates the creative potential possible in this research project. Best of luck, students!
