* Why look: This is a haven for pedestrians and anyone who wants to save time and parking fees by zipping around town on the mall bus. The mall's tree canopy, sleek light fixtures, and subtle gray and rose granite paver pattern are the genius of I.M. Pei and Henry Cobb. Enjoy it now: RTD is still talking about replacing the granite with concrete.
