kassel

client: dokumenta 13 / location: Kassel, Germany / status: competition entry / designed: 2011 / gr. floor area: varies / supervisor: Prof. Bettina Götz

In the spring of 2011 the documenta festival of contemporary art called for suggestions to build an information pavillion at Friedrichplatz in central Kassel. This pavillion uses the already existing organisation and accessibility of the wall in the park. Even though humble, it is individual
and efficient and does not compete with the expressions of the exhibited art. It plays with qualities of the site such as the beautiful trees, adjacent typologies and sightlines. The chosen site and the size of the pavillion gives it the necessary attention. Documenta has landed.
