The building site of the new shopping mall is situated in the centre of Duisburg between motorway BAB 59 and transrapid railway. The action and the dynamics of this site is extended into the long, flat and organically shaped building "MultiCasa". The open and light-flooded building is connected to the railway station and the city centre. The Multicasa's appearance as a "landmark" is independent and self-confident. By its expressive and modern shape the MultiCasa will become the symbol of "New Duisburg".
