The adaptability of a retail scheme is explored by applying Eckert et al. (2004) classifications to a UK shopping mall (part of a mixed use development). Visualisations of the case study data are presented as classified component types (constants, absorbers, carriers, multipliers), and change events (change ripples, blossoms, avalanches). Applied buffers and resistors are also highlighted to illustrate how the scheme dealt with change propagation. The paper concludes by briefly offering some thoughts on the applicability of the Eckert et al. (2004) classification system to the construction industry.
