Good idea for a thread, but I fear it will turn out to be a "Let's show my city's biggest mall" rather than basing it on beauty.

I'll start this by showing the Vasco da Gama Mall in Lisbon. Not my own city, and not the biggest mall in Lisbon, but in my opinion one of the most beatiful I have seen. Unfortunately it can't be explained in photos very well. But as soon as you arrive by the great rail station, you enter the large main atrium where the glass roof is entirely covered by flowing water, with the sun shining through. Besides the usual assortment of shops, there is a massive rooftop terrace filled with large beer gardens, with views overlooking one of the world's best waterfront parks filled with modern architecture. You can get a good idea of the area here or http://www.pbase.com/jchambers/lisbon_nationals]here[/URL] (Truely an amazing place)

Arriving by train:




Then lets go shopping

Nice thread but I think it's in the wrong section.

We have about 3 or 4 large ones around Manchester. The Trafford Centre, The Lowry and Manchester Arndale. The Manchester Arndale is ment to be one of the Biggest in europe when its finished later this year but its still petty shit. I prefer the Old High Streets to the indoor Malls.

I love those Asian malls above!

A while ago, someone here posted some great photos of the amazing Principe Pío mall in Madrid, anyone know where these are, as there is no search function?

Queen Victoria Building, Sydney... maybe? Karl Lagerfeld apparently called it the most beautiful mall in the world but I wouldn't admit to agreeing with anything that 'guy' says. Have you seen him? What a tosser!

Interesting thread. If I ever get to Europe, I will go to Lisbon, for a number of reasons.

Are these the greatest interiors of the twentieth century? Its cathedrals? Its temples?

Never thought I would see the words "beautiful" and "mall" in the same sentence.
