Title: The ShoppingScapes and the infrastructural city
Author: Tavares, Ana
Abstract: Metropolitan landscapes gained, in the last few decades, new forms of materialization due to a double-sided factor: the full infra-structuration of the territory and the potential offered by the auto- -mobilization of the populations. This change of paradigm turned possible for commercial enterprises to discard the functional and scale mixture found in the traditional urban centers and to prefer creating their own, fully accessible, new peripheral centralities. Currently, cities have to be understood not as central places by themselves, but as nodes in an extensive web of interactions that are shaping how we experience the urban daily life at the relational scale. Recently the commercial market seems to have reached stagnation, which is forcing investors to rethink their competitive strategies and to find new business models, from where the e-commerce is arising as a future trend. Can ShoppingScapes, as we know them, be in danger of disappearing?
