My favorite mall is the SM Mall in Baguio, Philippines. It was built on top of a hill, with a unique open-air design meant to take advantage of the cool breezes in that region.

There are wonderful examples of Chinese, Arabic, Indian or Spanish style, but that simply isn't it. Clutter doesn't make something stylish. For christs sake, they painted a blue sky on the roof!

And the new posts of the European styled mall with the glass roof are just as tacky. They are a mismatch of styles that don't work together and a classic example of how artificial replica's of old buildings in a modern structure don't work together. Besides the fact that the artificial replicas look nothing like the real thing.

It's a bit like wearing a football jumper under an Armani suit with tracksuit pants and steelcapped work boots. You wouldn't dress in such a mismatching way, and buildings shouldn't be designed in such a way.

Style has several meanings. In the context of these malls it is simply:

1) Style: The way in which something is said, done, expressed, or performed: i.e. Style of architecture

but what it lacks is:

2) Style: Comfort and elegance, a quality of imagination and individual taste, chic, flair, grace, panache and sophistication. i.e. this mall has no style

So, effectively, this mall's style has no style.
Old, but still winning!

West Edmonton Mall which used to be the largest mall in the world, is so beautiful I mean damn. It's probably the most beautiful place I have ever stepped foot in.

In all seriousness, that place is a DUMP! It needs a total overhaul... and being the largest mall on the contanent now, it really needs sprucing up.

lol

its pretty dated looking

they never took the outside into account at all when it was being done

they seem like they realized in later additions/renos to do something but it just looks awful and tacked on

Moscow's GUM has been mentoin by Gamma-Hamster... I just want to throw in a few pics

Copyright © 2005 Icolef SARL Visual Travel Guide





















From wikipedia:

"With the façade extending for 242 metres (265 yd) along the eastern side of Red Square, the Upper Trading Rows were built between 1890 and 1893 by Alexander Pomerantsev (responsible for architecture) and Vladimir Shukhov (responsible for engineering). The trapezoidal building features an interesting combination of elements of Russian medieval architecture and a steel framework and glass roof, a similar style to the great Victorian train stations of London. Nearby, also facing Red Square, is a very similar building, formerly known as the Middle Trading Rows.

Inside the store in 1893: elongated shop galleries are bridged with innovative metal-and-glass vaults, designed by Vladimir Shukhov.The existing structure — defined by William Craft Brumfield as "a tribute both to Shukhov's design and to the technical proficiency of Russian architecture toward the end of the 19th century" — was built to replace the previous trading rows that had burnt down in 1825. The glass-roof designed made the building unique at the time of construction. The roof, whose diameter is 14 metres (46 ft), looks light, but it is a firm construction made of over 50,000 pods (about 819 short tons (743 MT)) of metal. Illumination is provided by huge arched skylights of iron and glass, each weighing some 820 short tons (740 MT) tons and containing in excess of 20,000 panes of glass. The facade is split into several horizontal tiers, lined with red Finnish granite, Tarusa marble, and limestone. Each arcade is on three levels, linked by walkways of reinforced concrete."

To me every mall pales compared to the Galleria di Vittorio Emmanuele in Milan. It's BY FAR the most beautiful mall I've ever seen.
