Zaha Hadid Architects has begun construction on the NürnbergMesse Hall 3C for international exhibition and congress company NürnbergMesse, in Nuremberg, Germany. The design for Hall 3C is a continuation of the design principles from Hall 3A, which was built by Zaha Hadid Architects in 2014.
As a part of the NürnbergMesse exhibition company, Hall 3A connects existing hexagonal grid halls from the 1970s to the rectangular halls at Grosse Strasse. Hall 3C will be modeled in a similar fashion, featuring a trapezoid-shaped and spaning 10,000 square meters.
The inclined roof of the new Hall will drop from 20 to 13 meters in height to provide acoustic benefits, as well as reductions in energy consumption and emissions.
3,000 square meters of glazed façades will enable light to travel deep into the Hall.
Currently, pictures painted by students from local elementary schools on the theme of “Nuremberg—my city” are displayed along the 300 meter fence surrounding Hall 3C’s construction site, in a display of the strong social and economic links with the exhibition center in Nuremberg, which supports around 15,000 full-time jobs per year.
70 million Euros were invested in NürnbergMesse Hall 3C, and it is expected to be completed at the end of 2018.
