Pavilion KA300

Pavilion KA300

Project Description

To celebrate the three-hundred year anniversary of the founding of the city of Karlsruhe, this temporary event pavilion was erected in the city’s Schlossgarten. June 20th, 2015 marked the opening of the KA300 Pavilion in Karlsruhe. During the festival summer, various concerts, theatre performances, readings, film screenings, and exhibitions were held in the open structure.

The pavilion offers a large auditorium with a stage: it is the center of the jubilee activities around the city and a meeting point with a café. The twisted pattern of the pavilion refers to the strictly geometric, radial layout of the Baroque planned city of Karlsruhe with the palace 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 emerge. After the closing of the anniversary celebration from June to September 2015, the building materials of the pavilion were recycled in the building industry.
