It's party prep time for the City of Karlsruhe in Germany. Berlin-based architecture firm J. MAYER H. and Rubner Holzbau were recently commissioned by the city to design a temporary pavilion for its 300th anniversary in 2015.
The wooden pavilion will be built in Schlosspark and will serve as an event venue for the celebration. Construction will begin in March 2015.
Check it out below.
"To celebrate the 300th anniversary of the founding of the city of Karlsruhe in 2015, a temporary event pavilion will be erected in the city's Schlosspark. During the summer festival, various concerts, theater performances, readings, film screenings, and exhibitions will be held in the open structure."
"The pavilion offers a large auditorium with a stage: it will be the central information point for the jubilee activities around the city and a meeting point with a café. The twisted pattern of the pavilion refers to the strictly geometricradial lay out of the Baroque planned city of Karlsruhe with the castle as the focal point, transforming it into a spatial field of lines."
"On several layers in and on the structure, exhibition platforms, resting spaces, and viewing platforms will emerge. In a competition with tendering, J. MAYER H. und Partner, Architekten and Rubner Holzbau received the commission for their proposed dynamic wood construction using bar profiles."
