Nexus of Experience and Interaction:
A Program to Design a 21st Century Shopping Plaza
The aim of this competition was to produce a holistic, physical space that contains all of the possibilities for shopping, entertainment, leisure and being—in any form that may communicate practical, pragmatic and economically achievable solutions. These solutions were required to be implemented and built in a sustainable, innovative spirit.
‘124 Blossoms’ takes place in a conceptual version of 124th street here in Edmonton. Our response to the 21st century mall was to step away from the idea of rigid predetermined participation by the public and to incorporate the idea of a field of events with spaces that blossom into existence, presenting themselves in beautiful & spontaneous ways; unpredictable but premeditated, random yet intended.
