Two worlds—the metropolitan and the local—are present in Spreitenbach. Local communities in Spreitenbach do not only profit from the metropolitan world. Locals are even endangered by the metropolitans, a trend which is noticeable and is going to impact the grown social fabric even more. The Shoppi has the potential to link the local and the metropolitan, to become a public space for Spreitenbach by celebrating the potential of a shopping mall in the metropolitan periphery.
