Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The purpose of this essay is to better understand the motives of the real estate mogul and construction magnate -J.C.Nichols- responsible for the construction of the first non-centrally located shopping mall in the United States in Kansas City in the 1920s. Specifically, this study focuses on why and how Nichols resorted to a pastiche of “Spanish” historicist architectural styles to create this new space of consumerism.
