Shopping Environments is Published
Head of BDP's Retail sector, Peter Coleman's authoritative new book Shopping Environments (Evolution, Planning and Design) has been published in the UK.
The book is an extensive exploration of shopping centres, their design and how they have evolved over the years.
This design guide has over 600 illustrations that present the core values and considerations that make a successful retail centre: location, catchment user needs, as well as access and layout.
Covering everything from site master planning to the essentials of public facilities and the technical systems, this is essential reading for architects of contemporary shopping centres.
