City Center - The Henry Moore Garden



The Henry Moore sculpture (I think it's a womb) is beautifully placed among the futuristic architecture. A man is contemplating by the contemplating pool. You can see the sculpture in the blue window of the bottom photo - it's the ending centerpiece of a luxury shopping mall, The Crystals.

  3. Overall? City Center is spectacular, absolutely stunning, but who is it for? I can walk through and marvel, but I can't stay there or buy anything. It would be more remarkable if it catered to the average Joe - now that would be something indeed.

  5. Stunning building - and of course the sculpture is lovely although I can't help feeling that it is very out of place in a shopping centre.

    Seems a shame that such amazing architecture is, in fact, a temple to consumerism...?

  6. Wow! that second shot is so wild. I love how you captured the man hanging out. There is so much to look at-a real treat to enlarge to see more.

  7. Looks very special and futurist.

    In December usually everybody starts with Christmas decoration especially in Germany where I am coming from. It starts with Advent, the wreath with 4 candles I like this use so I kept it. In Poland too the families started with their Christmas decoration.
    It's not so exaggerated in Europe than in the States of course.

  8. Three beautiful images in a futuristic setting. I didn't realize how big was the sculpture in the first shot until I checked it in the last.

  13. It is indeed futuristic! I love the reflections in the pool! Seems a little far out for a shopping mall, but then I'm not one of the wealthy so maybe I see things a little different! Terrific shots though!

    Enjoy your day!

  16. I like the curves and angles of these shots. It does look very upscale - but not too busy. That reflecting pool is wonderful - it looks so clean for a shopping area.
