Good European shopping center: modern understanding

So please look and sometimes even get some pleasure :)

So this is last year finalist - "Uelemiste" from Tallinn:

The winner of the year 2016 was "Markthall" shopping center in Rotterdam, Netherlands. This is truely masterpiece:

And now lets go to the finalists of the year 2017. Among them is "Westfield Stratford City" center in London:

"Hoogh Catharijne" shopping center in Dutch city Utrecht:

"Westquay South" shopping center in Southhampton, England:

"Val d'Europe" shopping center in Paris suburb Serf:

"Plus City" shopping center in Austrian town Traun (which in fact is part of Linz metropolitan area):
