Not yet rated | write a review
For several years, Harvard''s design graduates concentrated their studies on the phenomenon of shopping as a primary mode of urban life. As Sze Tsung Leong writes, "Not only is shopping melting into everything, but everything is melting into shopping." ICK! So why did we pick up this book? Because Hannah at Quimby''s told us to. Hannah''s right; the design is very impressive, even if the motivation for it creeps us out.
