Sample text

A non-hierarchical territorial relationship represents a plenitude of different territorial productions, existing in the same place and without the preconception that one is dominant, or in any profound way outranks the others. Territorial heterarchies might be different in scope and strength, but they do not have any predetermined relationship or hierarchy of one being more correct than the others. Territorial hierarchies might of course be established (at the cost of territorial complexity), but these must be maintained through constant work and the mobilisation of resources.

Markets were often located at the central square, at the city gates or along the more well connected streets leading into the centre. With the rise of arcades and department stores, retail started to expand deeper into the spatial structure. This strategy is further developed by large retail areas, outlying mega-malls and big box landscapes where shoppers are invited deep into the spatial structure of large buildings or areas (for a discussion of how the relation between ‘inhabitants’ and ‘visitors’ could be structured differently, see Hiller and Hanson 1984, Markus 1993, Hanson 1999).

These changes came in the wake of large scale territorialisation processes affecting and affected by the built environment in different ways. In terms of architecture, the functional separation of retail was part and parcel of anti-urban ideals dispersing urban life through a dissolution of the traditional urban tissue (Panerai et al. 2004) and a modernistic architecture that wished to see ‘buildings as enclosed, self-contained systems against all evidence of the contrary’ (Forty 2000: 94). Large scale designs (Koolhaas 1995) and theming (Klingmann 2007, Kolb 2008) are just some examples of architectural trends that sustain this kind of development towards autonomous retail worlds.
