OTTO'S LUFTSCHLÖSSER

Herzogenriedpark Mannheim / DE, 2019

CUAB-wbw-multihalle-1a

Architectural intervention, in order to spatially revive and programmatically supplement the dormant potential of Frei Otto's visionary Multihalle. A new topography is proposed in the main hall as the basis for prefabricated workspace bubbles, which are planted into the grid of the Multihalle. As a second intervention, a landmark tower is proposed on the eastern edge of the Multihalle as the new entrance to the Herzogenried-Park.
