j. mayer h. architects: schaustelle for the pinakothek der moderne, munich

with munich’s pinakothek der moderne closing in february 2013 for renovations, german practice j. mayer h. architects will be erecting ‘the schaustelle’, an interim replacement building to house all exhibition activities including the four separate collections on site, and will be adaptable as a convention space, workshop and performance venue and theater.

containing an exterior modular scaffolding system, the multi-storey inhabitable space frame will provide much needed flexibility during the summer month expositions. original artwork will be displayed in a main hall on the ground level while the three-dimensional grid-like structure will provide the necessary versatility to display site-specific installations and expand the gallery area as desired. it will also allow screens to be hung at various planes that will project news, information and multimedia. visitors can wander to the upper floors where they may enjoy several new views of the city.

  • I sincerely hope they can make this work…I so love the idea. In New York we are so often treated without concern by indifferent developers, while renovation work goes on (and when is it not?), that there exists a kind of antagonism and ultimately numbing effect. This piece offers the promise of a collective sharing in the excitement of the continuum of rebirth.
