_Flipping the Strip

The proposal ‘FLIPPING THE STRIP’ flips the typical suburban strip mall inside out - taking advantage of residual space between existing buildings and more importantly the perimeter of underutilized sites to create newly defined program for potentially any site along a typical strip. The residual wrapper unifies existing buildings and creates a new face for development. Each wrapper consists of angled panels, either made of perforated screens or translucent glass. Signage angles towards both traffic directions for optimal exposure.
