The International Council of Shopping Centers classifies shopping malls into eight basic types: neighborhood center, community center, regional center, superregional center, fashion/specialty center, power center , theme/festival center, and outlet center 30 These definitions, published in 1999, were not restricted to shopping centers in any particular country, but later editions were made specific to the US with a separate set for Europe.
The mall is gigantic and a complete world into itself that it makes no connection with the surrounding neighbourhood, except on the logistics and circulation levels which are planned to draw people in. Some of the daily activities in the neighbourhood are moved indoor to the mall which is not a genuine public space.
The traditional communities are not only eroded by the virtualization of personal relationships in the realm of mass media and on the Internet, but also are replaced, engulfed or assimilated by the shopping malls and become the sites of comsumption in nature.
