If you log on to Deadmalls.com, you will find a tribute to the fallen indoor shopping malls that rely on large department store chains to draw customers.

"Deadmalls.com is a non-for-profit endeavor designed to promote the history of the malls as well as their nature, whether thriving or declining, and the impact of time and competition on these establishments," the site explains.

The new wave of the future is the open-air shopping mall like this one designed by Rick Caruso in Glendale, CA. It features a 16-acre development that includes a public square and apartments. Caruso has also designed The Grove in Los Angeles and is planning another in Arcadia, CA.
