Big Box Reuse: The Book

BBR.jpgWhat happens when big box retail destinations die? As the economic downturn causes people to reduce their trips to stores and to shop less, more stores are forced to close and leave malls deserted. What's to be done with these big empty boxes if and when they become vacant?

In Big Box Reuse, Julia Christensen explores this question by taking us on a tour of shopping destinations turned community centers. The book shows how 10 communities have turned vacated stores, like Wal-Marts and Kmarts, into churches, libraries, schools, medical centers and more.
