DOnt be hating on something you have never seen. JUst because you beleive that anything that doesnt have a classic european style is automatically ugly doesnt mean that you have the right to hate on everything else. You hate the man made palm islands? why? because you cant accept change? its 2006, new ideas to do things should be celebrated, not hated on.

go and get yourself some culture; start that by being more open minded.
well its not personal
but I've been to dubai
and the malls there are frankly ugly
its just an opinion based on facts, and opinions differ...you dont need to react to everything

as far as all the "man-made" stuff like the palm tree island, "world" replica island
and other crazy ideas

dubai surely can find better places to invest all that money instead of the guinnes book of world records

6 pages and yet not a nomination from the 'World's biggest shopping mall' itself - Hong Kong?

Then again, when I tried to think of a 'beautiful' Hong Kong mall, I couldn't think of one.

Certainly not one that appeals to all tastes - there's Pacific Place, Times Square and Landmark which I like, but they're more your run of the mill malls I guess.

Istanbul Kanyon and Roppongi Hills have been mentioned:
check out the website of their creator at jerde.com for more amazing malls of similar style, e.g. Namba Parks in Osaka.

Everyone here in this thread has his own preferences on what is beautiful or not and all is entitled to his own opinion. For me, each and every mall that were posted here has its own uniqueness and beauty to admire. So let us not spoil this good thread and just enjoy the sight of beautiful malls around the world.

the world's largest mall would definitely be the West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

no question about it
it has an indoor water park, beach, 5 star restaurant and tonnes and tonnes of stores

Mall of America would probably be second, in Minneapolis Minnesota US

The tonnes and tonnes of stores are the mall, the rest are seperate facilities in the complex, but technically they are not the mall itself.

but its still the largest mall without the other aspects...
or maybe they counted the waterpark as part of the mall to make it the largest mall in the world

Birmingham's Bullring is quite nice as well. I like malls like Horton Plaza in SD where a great deal is outdoors. Fashion Valley Mall in SD is cool too.

European Malls usually are much more better than the Malls in USA... Take an example. Look at the Horton Plaza In Downtown San Diego:the design its too kitsh and trash...Compare it with The Mall Athens in Greece: too elegant, classy and outstanding!!!

Milan's Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle is my fave! It's beautiful. My second fave would be Galerias Pacifico in Buenos Aires.
