leipzig: future or past?

This building, or should I say it's remains stood on the verge of downtown Leipzig. It used to be a shopping center and was eventually demolished in 2010. I took this picture before the demolition but after the removal of aluminum panels that covered the facade for the last couple of decades.
The construction looked like an adopted old building; the exposed core made impression of a structure out of a science-fiction movie.
The raw photograph was treated with 30% transparent mask of a HDR image.
