Fed up with fast-fashion and mindless shopping? So was Inger. By committing to a 12-month shop-stop, she delves into the polarizing world of fast-fashion and returns with a bunch of questions. Why do we think shopping is the ultimate female bonding experience? Are people who don´t shop super boring? Considering that the planet is running out of natural resources, should we only shop at ethical stores? And how come everyone always says ´´I have nothing to wear´´ when in the history of the world we´ve never owned more clothes than we do today? Part memoir, part series of unscientific observations, How Do I Look? demystifies shopping and calls for a redefinition of what it means to be a conscious consumer in the 21st century. 1.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject Art - Architecture / History of Construction, grade: 2.5, Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur (Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology), language: English, abstract: Organized retail formats are growing twice as fast as their traditional counterparts. But, in spite of that, the mall management is concerned about the rising rate of vacancy leading to economic unsustainability. The reason for high mall vacancy rates can be ascribed to faulty tenant placement and irrational rental plan. Existing studies on the tenant-mix-decisions focus more on inter store externality and not on the spatial logic. Moreover, normal industry practice follows rule-of-thumb instead of any scientific approach. A bid-rent model for profit maximization of individual stores is solved to identify the relationship between area allocation and rental decision with the customer density at that point. The customer density in turn depends on the accessibility and explained through visibility graph analysis and agent based simulation. The findings support the superiority of configurational characteristic over metric distances. A model for profit maximization of the entire shopping mall is proposed to explain the tenanting, rental and anchor rent subsidization decisions based on logic of spatial configuration. Space planning, in this way, can be considered as a tool for strategic decision making instead of an accommodator of functions.
