I think the trendsetting for this new shopping center is the clean lines and lack of foo-foo add-on architectural crap. The design by Noack-Little arcitects looks like a feature in Architecture Today, rather than Strip-Mall Roundup. They supplied a drawing I suspect came from the client's 10th-grade high school art student. Very colloquial execution, and a fairly simple design, as are the building designs. And simple is good.
