The former GDR ‘Centrum’ department store was designed by Hungarian architects Ferenc Simon and Ivan Fokvari and built in 1978 making first use of the distinctive honeycomb facade. It was converted to a Karstadt after the fall of Communism. Karstadt later moved across the street to a new, larger building and the Centrum building was demolished in spring 2007 so a new, huge mall, ‘Centrum Galerie’, could be built on the site. The rebuilding was undertaken by Peter Kulka Architektur Dresden.
