I took this photo inside the Abasto Shopping. When I saw the inside it seems to me a starship like the movie ones. In the background we can see a big Ferris Wheel inside the mall.
The Abasto of Buenos Aires (known as Abasto Shopping) is one of the largest and most successful shopping centers in Buenos Aires.
It ranks of the old Abasto Market, which opened in 1893 and closed in 1984. After a decade of neglect, it was purchased by the developer IRSA, associated with the Chilean company Parque Arauco. The old Market was remodeled and expanded to become a shopping. The restaurantion began in January 1997 and the mall was opened on November 9, 1998, with the presence of the President Carlos Menem.

Meu hotel em Buenos Aires em que fiquei em 2010 era do lado desse Shopping, que frequentei mas dele não tirei nenhuma foto por dentro!
A sua está muito linda!
Destaque para a exposição, as cores e a composição simétrica, envolvendo as partes superior e inferior de uma maneira bem harmoniosa e atraente!

so glad you took this photo.
often, malls and shopping centres are forgotten as great photographic subjects.
this one looks pretty darn cool, espcially with the lighting at the top and the strong lines giving depth.
the red and orange/yellow colors are cool too.
good choice to post this one

What a beautiful interior! The red seats really jump out against the gold tones. I like the arched ceiling and the futuristic lights, and the ferris wheel makes it all seem a bit surreal. It's great when old markets are saved and turned into something new, just like Chelsea Market here in NYC. :-)

I spent only 4 days in Buenos Aires and it's so large that of course I had no time to visit this shopping center
But i must say you were right to go there since the place is very photogenic with its vivid colors and its modern look
Bravo, well exploited
