Shopping Nord Graz
The largest shopping centre in the north of Graz has been converted and extended. A roof, which is almost ten metres high, is built on reinforced concrete stilts, that seem randomly arranged to create a playful and light space. This effect is underlined by a glazed, asymmetrical and circular roof opening to allow for plenty of natural light, illuminating the seating areas on the curved and colourful paved promenade. New appealing retail and gastronomy areas have been created.
Statement of the jury
The boldly roofed forecourt with its organic design and the elegantly curved promenade lend the centre a contemporary, distinctive character.
