In the Meantime, Life With Landbanking

In the Meantime, Life with Landbanking is Interboro’s winning entry to the LA Forum for Architecture’s “Dead Malls” Competition, which asked contestants to envision a future for a dead shopping mall of their choosing. Interboro’s project, a reimagining of the Dutchess County Mall in Fishkill, NY was inspired by a conversation it had with the mall’s developer, who made it clear that he was landbanking the property. Interboro asked “what can be done in the meantime?” ┬áRejecting the idea of a traditional masterplan, our submission is a collection of small, cheap, feasible moves that come in over time, and lead to many possible futures.
