Beijing 2009 - The Village at Sanlitun
The architectural design and planning is very well done and creates interesting spaces for shoppers to wonder around. The buildings are anchored by a main plaza with water fountains and a huge LED screen on one side of the buildings.
The details of some of the buildings are really interesting, like this facade clad in perforated gold-metallic sheets. It looks like an expensive jewelry box - more expensive then the stuff they sell inside, perhaps ?
This is one of the rare shopping centres you visit for the architectural design rather then the shopping. Make a stop here if you happen to be in Beijing. You won't regret it.
