The momentum of the â€œdead mallâ€? may be too great to prevent at this point in time. The propaganda set forth by those who steroid fed the architype (Mall of America in mind) have succeeded. The Church of Capitalism had not needed to pray for forgiveness but simply cast away their sins. Perhaps the greatest cover up of contemporary architecture, one can reflect upon two distinctly diďŹ€erent lives the mall lived throughout the decades; a life dedicated to the teachings and following of capitalism and one deeply invested in the desire to unite the suburban landscape.
