In a design competition hosted by the German city of Jubilee, J. Mayer H. Architects and Rubner Holzbau have won the commission for a temporary event pavilion which will be erected in Castle Park in March of 2015 to celebrate the 300th Anniversary of the founding of the city of Karlsruhe.

The “dynamic wood construction” is inspired by the radial geometry of the Baroque urban layout of Karlsruhe, realized in 1715 by Charles III William. The twisted pattern of lines and layers emerge from the pavilion as exhibition platforms, rest areas, and viewing platforms.

The pavilion will be the central information point for the summer festival’s activities and will house a large auditorium and stage, public meeting space, and a café.
