The new Aeon Mall provides a dynamic shopping experience, generating business for the local economy. Blending with the site’s rolling hills, the shopping center appears as a soft hill with an abundance of green terraces and landscaped walls. When you arrive at the Mall, the oversized canopy will draw you into a vibrant outdoor food and beverage-shopping street scaled to cultivate public interaction. The way the project emerges from its natural context is extended through green features such as energy saving LED lighting and roof solar panels. That thinking is evident in design choices which respond to natural extremes. Through careful calculation, no ceiling materials will fall during seismic activity that is common in the region. In the event of a tsunami, the non-structural wall will release impact, so that the building structure won’t be damaged as people in the neighborhood evacuate.
