to revitalize the historic square of marienplatz, in bad aibling germany, münchen-based behnisch architekten have designed a new town hall. located in the center of the city the new structure will be erected on the cellar level respecting the existing foundations and supply network. the new building will accommodate public functions such as civic services, administrative offices, a public library and an event space for weddings. the visitor’s entrance leads into an atrium with a light refracting wall which rises to the height of the glass ceiling as an architectural feature. the ground floor level will house several shops and cafe’s to promote activity and gatherings after business hours.
