Flagship Store Berlin - an aesthetic adventure

Flagship Store Berlin - an aesthetic adventure

Professor Gottfried Böhm is the only German to win the Pritzker award, the “Nobel prize” of architecture. He won the award in 1986. His design of the Berlin flagship store certainly is proof that he was worthy of the prize. Appropriately for P&C, he developed a thrilling idea for the project and enveloped the building in a glass sheet. The glass façade gives the impression of a swinging glass skirt. At the top it is closely gathered and flared to the bottom. The glass roofs form wide-swinging folds over the pavement, like umbrellas over the passers-by strolling past the shop windows. An artful play on the elements.
