I’m not the fan of shopping malls and shopping, but I’ve visited several good looking malls during the years, but I’ve never seen something like this before. This mall is designed by Ron Arad Architects, and like all Ron Arad Architects’s buildings it has a unique design. As for this amazing mall, it is located near Santiago Calatrava’s high speed rail station in Liège, Belgium. This mall is named Médiacité and it has 1150 feet, or 350 meters, long winding spine that connects the two mall buildings together. I have to admit that this mall looks incredible and quite futuristic because of the complex network of steel roof ribs that hold the mall together.
Besides holding the building together, these ribs arch over the mall’s main pathway creating a spectacular sight for its visitors. This mall is simply huge, and it’s well lighted due to the ribs that cross with each other. Great part of this mall is covered in translucent material, therefore this mall gets enough sunlight during the day, and besides sunlight, the roof provides one of the most amazing sights that you saw. Like I said before, this is one amazing mall, and if you’re visiting Belgium anytime soon make sure that you check this mall out.
