University of Alberta launches shopping centre ideas contest

  • Comment

[Submissions must be received by 30 November] The University of Alberta in Canada has launched an open ideas competition focusing on the reinvention of American shopping centres

The contest is aimed at finding new uses for abandoned or underused American and European shopping centres, also known as strip malls.

Called ‘Strip Appeal’, the competition focuses on the reuse and adaptation of American Strip Malls and their European equivalents to meet contemporary needs.

Sites may constitute small groups of between five to eight shops with submitting parties free to determine the plot’s future uses and amenity.

The winning team will receive $1,000 and their scheme will be featured in a travelling exhibition showcasing local regeneration.
