Kunsthalle Mannheim Winning Proposal / gmp Architekten

Courtesy of

Just this past Monday, gmp Architekten was awarded the contract to design the new Kunsthalle , a decision made by the Kunsthalle‘s jury. Their winning design portrays a symbolic identity, both on the outside and on the inside. The idea was to create a place that is easily remembered, and which appeals with its functional and urban quality. Analogous to the chess board type layout of ’s inner city, the design is a composition of several cubes, the regularity of which is however broken by an offset arrangement in terms of height and width, and also by the arrangement of squares within the development. More images and architects’ description after the break.
