2010-article name-MALLED IN DELHI

Almost all the shops inside the malls wear Trans-Atlantic, generic look that is least engaging. As we turn our backs on our own indigenous retail aesthetics and structures ,and move towards A desire to create the sleek but bland, stereotypical American mall,I think we fall somewhere the twoand failed at both.

Thesewould need tobe revisited,cotextualised and marginallyre-programmed to meet the needs of modern shoppers And to fit the contemporary retail context.

What the bazars and mandies need are : a hygienic disposal system for waste , cleaner and more efficient drainage systems,more space for customers to move around ,and adequate parking.

These are the shops thatallow every customer ti dig deep into mounds of cloth and crops,to pick out ultimate bargain. The root of this aesthetic and retail methodologyneeds to inform the contemporary indigenous shopping experience,as oppose to the generic form thats taking over the world at present Our subcontinent has always been a melting pot of people and cultures , and the American /middleEastern mall is more than welcome,but I certainlywouldn,t like to see all our prime spaces and buildings blindly move towards uni-dimentional retail horizon that is Dubai,kuala Lumpur and New Jersey.

A settlement on the whole is usually rich with historical, ethnographic, ideological and architectural outlooks. The urban realm thus formed by intrinsic as well extrinsic juxtaposition of the transformation of everyday life and its needs into habitable spaces conveys a sense of symbolism. It is an iconic vista of delight and confusion which conveys a dialectic process of evolution and transition of form, space and order. Urban realm is a constantly evolving continuum completely interlinked with its user; the total embodiment of function, perception, and sense of belonging. The activity generators associated to it are in a continuous state of interweaving dialogue .
