An Unusual Architecture Of A Mall

The shady and intimate courts, Spanish towers, Moroccan arches, white washed facades, and simple tiled roofs typify the architectural ambiance of this recreated Andalusian village, as it was described by Exline Design. It’s a very unique architecture design for a shopping mall in Irvine, California.

I recognized the style of the architecture as soon as we walked in this section of the mall. While having coffee at the Starbucks in the mall, I did a Google search on my iPhone find out the background of the architecture.

Wikipedia explains, “The unusual architecture of the property is based on the Alhambra in GranadaSpain, figuring most prominently in the center’s second phase.”

Restaurants, chefs rally to help feed those affected by Hurricane Harvey

“When we got there, the officers were soaking wet. I’m not joking, they had only a sad plate of old chicken wings. They had no other food,” said Callie Easterly, who delivered the pizza with her mother and father-in-law, Debbie and Eddie Love, owners of Frank’s Pizza. “They started cheering us and hugging us. We said we’re the ones who should be cheering them.”

Thank you for visiting!

    • Granada is beautiful and unique. We should be grateful that Queen Elizabeth kept her promise not to destroy Alhambra. I did a few posts for Alhambra after visiting Granada. I wish we spent more time there.

  3. Amy I am so happy to see this good news story of people helping people. It takes so many levels of kindness and compassion in such a disaster.

    Good for you to recognize the beautiful architecture. This mall is certainly not just a big box store.


    • It was a delightful experience. love to be reminded of Alhambra. The person who encouraged us to visit didn’t know about the uniqueness of the architecture. 🙂


  4. I like it that you recognized the architecture in the So. Calif. mall, Amy, and made your own discovery. It’s a gorgeous design. And I really like the pizza and police story and photo. What those heroes have all seen and managed in the past few days, and each person is still beaming a smile.
