When Ariadne first entered Cobb's dream, she was attacked by Cobb's subconscious projections as she changed the surroundings. Then how could Mal and Cobb possibly create an entire city without one being attacked by the other's subconscious projections? Also, why is it that it seems as though there are no subconscious projections at all whatsoever in mal and cobb's dreams?

In the upper layers of their shared dreams, they might have been attacked by each other's subconscious projections. However, in the Limbo space, such projections don't normally appear as it is a shared dreamspace, instead of one person's dream. However, Cobb's projection of Mal was so ingrained into his psyche that it haunted him inside any person's mind, including the raw mental space of Limbo.

They are in Limbo, an empty World which is the Same for everyone. So they aren't really in anyone's dream.

It's not Cobb's dream, it's Ariadne's. Cobb's projections attack her because his subconscious realise this isn't his own dream. See here http://www.smartfaqt.com/ViewQA.php?qaID=145
