Daliana, Andra Matin and Florian Heinzelmann, Daliana's partner at SHAU create “Social Mall”, an instalation artwork about the idea of ideal shopping mall
“Social Mall” is addressed to public authorities and private investors or developers. The project would like to respond to two of Jakarta’s problems: (1) the lack of the public facilities and (2) over-saturation of shopping malls, in one spatial solution.
Since 1980s, the city experienced an increased activity of the private sector, sometimes in the detriment of the public sector. Around 170 malls have been built in the Jakarta region since then. But despite this increasing trend some of these malls suffer from the lack of customers and disconnection with the neighborhood, infrastructure and other malls.
“Social Mall” integrates public facilities, such as library, playground, clinics, sports field, green spaces, which are missing into malls that have low occupancy rates and empty commercial spaces.
In addition the authors see potential in maximizing connections between malls with bridges, platforms and ramps that can accommodate public programs and which could become a new symbol of the city of Jakarta.
