Honorable Mention TIFA 2022 Architecture / Buildings

Centrum Gallery

    Stefan Lindner

The shopping center was opened on the site of the old Centrum department store in Dresden in 2009. From this, the architect Peter Kulka adopted the characteristic honeycomb structure, which was created during the construction of the building in the mid-1970s.

Stefan Lindner lives and works in Dresden, Germany. As a graduate engineer for furniture construction, he manufactured furniture in the Bauhaus style for a long time. Their straightness and functionality inspired him as a self-taught photographer since the late 90s to photograph modern architecture. Here it is the clearly structured facades of concrete, steel and glass that inspire him to design the photos in black and white, and in which he also often likes to abstract. In doing so, he tries to find the perspective that emphasizes the uniqueness of the building through detailed planning.
