j. mayer h. erects sculptural concrete tram stop in kehl, germany

j.mayer.h is celebrating the completion of a new tram stop in kehl, germany. as part of the new transnational tram line crossing the rhine river from strasbourg, france into kehl, germany, the berlin-based architectural practice has erected a structure composed of bright round, exposed concrete discs that condense aspects of dynamism, balance, lability, and mobility in an infrastructural sculpture.

strasbourg is europe’s capital and thus a symbol for europe’s unity. the new public transport connection between strasbourg in france and kehl in germany underscores the cohesion of these countries at the center of the european union. on the french side, a landscape-like spatial fold designed by zaha hadid was created for the terminal station in 2001. at the other end of the line, at kehl city hall on the german side, the stop by j.mayer.h, as well as hadid’s, is characterized by unique architecture, and features everyday minor border traffic commutes between the two.
