Guess there are awesome Malls around the world.....beauty is in the eye of the beholder....and thats the thread here ! Larger and more impressive malls are underconstruction everywhere plus further extension and refurbishment of existing Malls.....Here in Melbourne, Australia, Chadstone continues to amaze me with its expansion and architecture...but its all international architecture..could be in any city of the world...so my choice for the most beautiful......'Galleria' Milan Italy....beautiful !!!!!!!

To qualify how BEAUTIFUL a mall is,is kind of a subjective appreciation.But if we speak in terms of size,well thats different.
let me show you a few pictures of CITY MALL in San Pedro Sula,Honduras:

Yeah, I agree Galleria in Milan is magnificent. There's hundreds of other huge malls around but there's basically all the same blah

The Galleria Vittoria Emmanuel in Milano, Italy is by far the most magnificent shopping mall I have ever seen, if it is a mall.

Greenbelt in Manila, part of the Ayala Center is second, fabulous interaction between nature and urbanity and it's got a fantastic design too!

The malls in Hamburg's suburbs are all basically the same and not worth to be mentioned in this thread. But you find some nice small malls (or passages) in the city centre.

[the first two pictures by Wolfgang Meinhart)
Hanseviertel. The mall itself has just 9.000m² out of the 45.000m² complex and was inaugurated in 1980.


Levantehaus



Galleria


Mellin-Passage (Hamburg's oldest an shortest "mall")


There are more malls in the city-centre (incl. the Europa Passage, allegedly Germany's biggest inner-city-mall). But those shown above are IMO the most beautyful Hamburg has to offer.

This is my favorite mall in Hong Kong. I personally think it's quite beautiful and very original for it's design.

To explain... there's a small underground part of a few levels with a traditional underground mall feel. But then as shown in the last picture, there's a huge lobby that looks all the way to the top (about 11 stories). You can either take the escalator that goes all the way to the top which features a number of theme restaurants and a fake 'night sky' ceiling or you can walk up. If you walk, the walkway curves around the edges of the building (the stores actually line the edge, the walkway is towards the center, but there is a significant space in the middle to look all the way down to the lobby from) and slowly goes up as it whirls around the building. In this way there are no stairs exactly, and if you just walk, you will eventually go from the bottom to the restaurants at the top. Pretty innovative design for a mall with a relatively small footprint.

I think americans just don't care if malls are beautiful or not, as long as they have good stores and are functional that's all that matters...

Most Americans don't want them beautiful, they want them kitschy and tacky with obscene amounts of parking. Entire cities in America are built with these concepts in mind. (Las Vegas is probably the best example.)

huh? that totally doesn't make sense at all.

But I have to admit, compared to these malls, the malls around my area are garbage.

Sorry but the idea that the ultimate in capitalist kitsch could ever be termed 'beautiful' even in a comparative context is enough to make me

and
again.
