Mallrats - #43


This is the atrium at the Mall Of The Emirates.

I believe it is the biggest mall outside of North America - although I maybe wrong...

I like the steel and sky latice effect.

Great shot and fantastic composition. Kind of dramatic, well done.

There once was a time when great works of art were religious. Today, in the Emirates anyway, they are found in temples of consumption. Beautiful, I have to say.

It's a shame the UK can't take a leaf out of Dubai's page. All we seem to be doing is knocking down beautiful buildings and replacing them with cheap ugly apartment blocks and sh**ty shopping malls.

it's beautiful, this photo reminds me of Musee Orsay in Paris, but this mall has much more natural daylight...the ceiling is amazing

The steel and glass curved ceiling is eerily similar to that of the Winter Garden in the World Financial Center.

The new part of the Burjaman centre is very similar in style.
