Description

The Shopping Cité is a vibrant retail mall with two beautiful domed Texlon® ETFE roofs – fondly referred to as UFOs by locals. This retail mall on the outskirts of Baden-Baden covers approximately 18,000 square meters of shops and restaurants on the site of a former French barracks.

 

The domed Texlon® ETFE roofs allow light to flood into the mall reducing artificial lighting requirements. The Texlon® roof elements are also retractable allowing the mall operators to naturally ventilate the mall as required.
