Plantahof Auditorium

Plantahof Auditorium

Project Description

The positioning of the new auditorium creates a new central square within the overall structure of the Plantahof agriculture school. The high façade holds the new piazza together.

The inner space of the auditorium is bathed in diffuse light. Two windows facing each other define the interior space and open up a view from the new piazza towards the axis of the Prättigau valley. A thin, dark-coloured, concrete wall stretches over the pillars like a tent. These elements are supported outside the building by the abutments. The structure combines in equal measure a frame and a solid construction. The result is a hybrid of pillars and walls, expressing the architectural concept and lending the building character.

The new auditorium is multifunctional and has a capacity of 130 to 180 seats. In addition to its conventional use, the new hall has the capacity to host different types of events such as seminars, congresses and panel discussions.
