And what matters most of all, is to sit inside some mall

Nice: Shopping Malls of the 60s and 70s. There's a wonderful postwar plastic-fantastic vibe to these designs, a sense of fun that I think tends to be missing from modern mall interior design, all Swedish Modern glass and wood. It's a shame that the best documentary evidence of such massive suburban beasts resides mostly now in the hands of hobbyists like this gentleman or Lileks, or unintentionally surviving in films like Dawn of the Dead. (This, however, is a bit more creepily thematically Dawn of the Dead than most everything else on the site.) (Via BoingBoing.)
