Future of Faisalabad city "Sitara Mall"
Sitara shopping Mall is a model of today’s shopping concept. It consists of large branded stores having its principal entrance on the 200 feet wide main dual carriage way road between famous D-Ground Shopping Center and Satiana Road commercial area, providing ample front parking space. This road has dual lane roads on each side with large parking space, lined with PCC pavers that will provide uninterrupted flow of traffic as a green belt is provided between fast moving traffic and parked cars. The Local Government has already launched this infrastructural project. The Mall is electronically controlled and monitored for safety reasons and for providing comfort to the customers. Sitara Mall has parking and shopping facility completely integrated and provides safe and decent movement to every customer from parking to shopping and vice versa. Sitara Mall is enclosed in the form of a huge court and lighted by skylight solely by artificial means. This court has greater lighting intensity, greater height and spectacular features such as:
fountains, picturesque landscaping and monumental sculptures. The four-level shopping Mall ensures convenient walking distances and efficient flow of people and goods. It also helps to systemize the shopping pattern with respect to the trade. Special care has been taken to achieve customer convenience and customer appeal. It has been achieved by providing convenient accessibility from parking area by means of fast moving lifts, escalators, cargo lifts and staircases. There is no dead-end on any level without a department store as its terminus and visual interconnection of levels through courts, permitting maximum visibility of shops and customers of one level from the other ones.
Impact of Architecture on Human Life
“I know that architecture is life; or at least it is life itself taking form and therefore it is the truest record of life as it was lived in the world yesterday, as it is lived today or ever will be lived.” - Frank Lloyd Wright.
“Space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep.” - Le Corbusier
"Architecture is that great living creative spirit which from generation to generation, from age to age, proceeds, persists, creates, according to the nature of man, and his circumstances as they change. That is really architecture" - Frank Lloyd Wright.
