ABSTRACT

Shopping architecture, above all so-called specialty store rows, characterize the appearance of our cities: The French ethnologist and anthropologist Marc Augé speaks in this context of so-called non-places - mono-functionally used areas in urban and suburban space. Joseph Thanhäuser's work deals with this phenomenon using the Hermes-Areal in Halle (Saale) as an example and renegotiates the relationship between architecture or design and consumption in a speculative and ironic way. The result is a book that exaggeratedly questions the idea of constant growth in retail and its consequences for urban space. The typeface Cashflow Regular was specially designed for the project.
