This studio elective introduces students to the wider conceptual framework of exhibition/event/spatial design as intervention and prompt for social activation within the niched typology of the Retail Shopping Centre. This is a highly conceptual, multidisciplinary subject that brings students together to both identify and solve potential needs and objectives through design speculation, delivered in group projects and individual tasks.

the practice of Retail Shopping Centre design and the associated user experience. Areas of study include brief writing, design innovation – exhibition/event, the Retail Shopping Centre as social space and the collaborative design process.
