Next year, the city of Karlsruhe in Germany celebrates its 300th anniversary. For the festivities he invited the Berlin architect studio J. Mayer H to design a Jubilee Pavilion that will be used to host events and exhibitions throughout the summer of 2015. The studio has designed a temporary structure comprising a wonky grid of criss-crossing timber beams. It will be constructed in Schlosspark, the castle gardens that form the heart of the city famed for its radial urban plan, which is made up of 32 circulating streets and avenues. To reference this, the architects conceived the structure as a 3D lattice where vertical memebers all angle towards the precies centre of the city. "The twisted pattern of the pavillion referes to the strictly geometric-radial lay out of the Baroque-planned city of Karlsruhe with the castle as the focal point, transforming it into a spatial field of lines," they said. Further they added:"On several layers in and on the structure, exhibition platforms, resting spaces and viewing platforms will emerge."
Constructions will begin in March 2015.
