Last year, J. MAYER H. was selected to design a temporary pavilion for the 300th year anniversary Jubilee celebration for the City of Karlsruhe in Germany. One year later, construction is already underway. A topping out ceremony for the pavilion was held on March 24.
The criss-crossed wooden structure will be built in Schlosspark as a central gathering venue when festivities start this June.
More info further down.
During the summer festival, various concerts, theatre performances, readings, film screenings, and exhibitions will be held in the open structure, which offers a large auditorium with a stage. In a competition with tendering, J. MAYER H. and Rubner Holzbau received the commission for their proposed dynamic wood construction using bar profiles. All the wood, which was provided by Rubner, is supplied ready for installation on the site in order to guarantee a short and timely construction on Schlosspark grounds.
After the closing of the anniversary celebration -- which begins June 17 until September 2015 -- the temporary pavilion will be dismantled, transported and re-used afterwards in another location.
Check out some construction photos and drawings below.
