Multi-Functional Hall Ulm / Neu-Ulm

The new multi-functional hall for Ulm and Neu Ulm has been designed as a landmark at the town´s entrance, which is visible from far away.
The hall´s rounded block stands as a special dynamic shape on a plinth growing out of the landscape with a planted embankment. The prominent, opening gesture towards the town creates an inviting situation for entry.
The entrance plateau offers the hall´s visitors both visual and acoustic protection from the neighbouring traffic on a level which is removed from the street level.
The areas for spectators with the foyer and wrap-around area are contained transparently by the surrounding glazing, in order to reinforce the references between inside and outside.
