Strip Appeal is an ideas design competition, and travelling exhibit, intended to stimulate and showcase creative design proposals for the adaptive reuse of small-scale strip-malls. The economic downturn has brought with it the closing of shops and malls across the country, leading to an excess of dead retail space. Strip Appeal asks us to consider: How might the small-scale strip be reinvented and redeveloped to a local advantage? This competition invites creatives to identify ailing strip-malls in their local neighborhoods and to apply their ideas for the reinvention and adaptive reuse. Entries are due by November 30, 2011.
