Shopping (Luleå)

Original interior, 1955.

Shopping is a shopping mall in down-town Luleå, northern Sweden. It was originally designed by Ralph Erskine with an intent to let "city life" move indoors during the cold seasons. Consequently, it was the first purpose built indoor shopping centre in the world, when it opened in October 1955.[1] Since its inauguration it has seen multiple refurbishments and alterations, but is still used as a shopping mall.
