LafargeHolcim Foundation Professional Exchange on Sustainable Construction
Marketplaces - shopping malls


Marketplaces - shopping malls

The market has traditionally been the place for the exchange of everyday consumer goods. Mass culture, globalization, and information technology have changed the requirements of
marketplaces – where the production and distribution of branded commodities as well as the creation of shopping entertainment centers have altered the basic behavioral patterns of
consumer activity.

What are the future challenges for creating sustainable constructions as pertaining to the supply of and access to goods?

Search Help

Our website search engine covers the web pages including project descriptions and expert profiles, PDFs, images and videos on the LafargeHolcim Foundation website. To improve your search results, here are some tips:

Basic search

Our search defaults to term-pairing AND. If you search sustainable construction - then the search engine will look for any items containing sustainable AND construction


photovoltaic OR solar

Looks for either word


(clay OR mud) AND (school OR university)

Combine alternative terms for more specific searching


geothermal -heating

Excludes a term from results, automatically ANDs other terms listed


"zero carbon"

Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase or combination

Wildcards (one or more characters)


Asterisk (*) matches any word or phrase - so archit* will find architect, architecture, architectural as well as architrave
