title The IKEA Factor - Driving elements of the development of shopping centresat the edges of European metropolitan regions

summary A house and a garden in the suburb, a car for each adult and a TV set with minidish. On weekdays mum and dad work, the children go to school or kindergarten. On Saturdays (or Sundays) the family goes shopping to the shopping centre, where they buy what they need, have a cheap meal and can see a film or just pass the time. That seems to be the way of life for a typical middle class family in the so-called western world, or at least what sitcoms, comics, adverts and films make people believe what it normally should be. That propagated way of living strongly influences people’s and especially consumers’ behavioural patterns and consequently spatialdevelopments, which are the present challenges for urban and regional planners.
