Retail Building Developments in Germany – Neue Deutsche Architektur

post updated 11 Oct 2020

Retail Buildings in Germany

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of German Retail Buildings. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed Retail Buildings in Germany, new Shopping Centre designs and architecture competitions across the country. The focus is on contemporary buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 1 page of German Retail Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.

There is today an enormous potential in the re-scripting of grand industrial spaces, survivors from an epoch that had less trouble expressing itself and its mechanical or technical potency than our current mean and exploitative ‘global shopping-centre-culture’. One thinks of São Paulo’s Fábrica da Pompéia by Lina Bo Bardi, London’s Tate Bankside, or the Zollverein Coal Mine in Essen, Germany.
