“El Helicoide de la Roca Tarpeya” in Caracas, Venezuela, would have been a spiral drive-in mall. Built between 1956 and 1960, El Helicoide’s construction flattened the hill “La Roca Tarpeya” into seven gradually decreasing terraces, surrounded by a two-mile long vehicular double-helix that allowed drivers to park right in front of their business of choice. With a state-of-the-art mall with futuristic design, Austrian custom-made elevators and a radio station, El Helicoide would have featured over a hundred high-end boutiques, a hotel, cinemas, exhibition halls and a heliport.
