One thing that I have been fairly passionate about for a number of years is enclosed shopping malls. I like just about everything about them – particularly their architecture and decor. Sadly, open air shopping centers seem more popular these days, and from research I’ve done, the traditional enclosed shopping mall has been in decline in popularity. It seems that malls grew in popularity during the ‘70s and ‘80s – and began to decline in popularity during the ‘90s. It’s a trend that I, personally, really hate to see. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a problem with open air shopping centers. It’s just that I like malls better. I just love the big, box buildings that seem so tall and have the tinted glass windows. And I love how inside it’s just like a miniature city with its own paths, benches, plants, restaurants, etc. I love the smells, the floors, the skylights, the big signs, the fountains, and so on. But I guess another reason why I love malls roots from nostalgia of visiting them as a kid in the ’90s. I like just about all malls, and I’ve enjoyed reading many blogs with pictures of malls and shopping centers (see below). But there are a few malls that stick out in my mind. I don’t have a huge obsession with any of the following malls, but they are at least somewhat interesting to me.
