to celebrate the 300th anniversary of karlsruhe, j. mayer h. has designed ‘KA300’- a temporary pavilion erected in the german city’s schlossgarten. during the festival summer, various concerts, theater performances, readings, film screenings, and exhibitions will be held in the open structure before it is dismantled at the end of its three month tenure. the scheme includes a large auditorium with a stage, which forms the center of the jubilee activities with a meeting point and café.

the pavilion’s twisted pattern refers to the strictly geometric, radial layout of the baroque-planned city, with the palace identified as the focal point. on several layers, both in and on the structure, exhibition platforms, resting spaces, and viewing platforms emerge. completed in collaboration with rubner holzbau, work on the timber construction started in february 2015. after the closing of the anniversary celebration, the temporary pavilion will be transported and reused in another location.
