|The former building occupying this spot was the GDR Centrum department store designed by Hungarian architects Ferenc Simon and Ivan Fokvari and built in 1978. Like this new building, it too had an unusual honeycomb facade. After the fall of communism, the building continued for a time in use but was demolished in 2007. This new large mall was then erected on the site. |
