COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THREE SUBURBAN MALLS: THE INFLUENCE OF PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT ON PEDESTRIAN BEHAVIOR

RESULTS OF TWO-YEAR OBSERVATIONS OF THREE SUBURBAN MALLS WERE COMPARED AND ANALYZED WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF EACH MALL'S ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEM. FOR A MALL TO EFFECTIVELY MEET ITS OBJECTIVES THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERISTICS SHOULD PREVAIL: THE OVERALL ENVIRONMENT OF THE MALL SYSTEM MUST NOT ASSAIL THE HUMAN SENSES; THE COMPREHENSIVE DESIGN AND PHYSICAL FORM OF THE MALL OUGHT TO BE WITHIN HUMAN SCALE; PEDESTRIANISM MUST BE THE MAIN MODE OF TRANSPORTATION IN THE MALL SYSTEM; THE MALL ITSELF MUST SERVE AS THE NUCLEUS OF THE SYSTEM WITH RESPECT TO BOTH HUMAN ACTIVITY AND PHYSICAL FORM; AND IT SHOULD NOT BE INTERSECTED BY AUTOMOBILE TRAFFIC. /HRIS/
