This illustrated scenario is what Lahoris must be familiar with, because it's such a genuine problem, and it might be true that you haven't come across it, because females don't bother asking men of family as they already know the answer. I wonder why boys hesitate to go to local markets but are find with families in shopping malls ..... Well, it's true that shopping malls have multiple activities to do, while providing more stuff in less space and just go, grab and pay system. No bargaining or opportunity of finding the right piece among thousands of cloth pieces... (So boring)
So, my thesis analysis was just this basic topic of how local markets area can provide opportunity for men as well, instead of, staying in cars within parking lot.... So, what if they can watch match with other men waiting, or play with their kids while mom & daughters shop, or just stroll while eating an ice cream or coffee in park... That's how a real public square is meant to provide people with quality time. And how awesome can shopping activity be turned into family time, from a family drive to good time to family meals in outdoor... Not all areas, but those with such potential must be designed accordingly.
A city is a place belonging to all... To many happenings at same time in same place brings vibrancy to it... It's not just lighting or crowd that makes a place vibrant in true sense. So, in order to see whether a place serves all or not, see who is missing...
Find out the ones out of sight...
Then, bring them in...
Making it an inclusive design. A place that is multi functional and ultimately vibrant & a best destination for public. This will be so effective in order to create a less stressful place within a busy city, that will have infinite experiences to offer for everyone.
