as a means of creating a temporary exhibition space for the pinakothek der moderne in munich–while the cultural institution was closed between february and september 2013 for renovation work–j. mayer h. architects conceived ‘schaustelle’, a makeshift pavilion which has housed the museum’s four collections while reconstruction is taking place. the structure is a composition of open metal scaffolding which offers an additional area for presenting experimental projects. hovering over the existing infrastructure, ‘schaustelle’ has been designed to allow visitors to walk through it, as well as rest on its exposed platforms, enjoying glimpses of the surrounding cityscape while engaging with works on display. the temporary construction has also been built to stand as a political signal to push for the completion of a second section of the main building–an operational platform and think tank in one.
