Multi-purpose Hall – Iserlohn, Germany

The multi-purpose hall activates¬†the ridge¬†of Alexanderh√∂he,¬†and turns,¬†on one side,¬†toward the park¬†and, on the other¬†side,¬†toward the city.¬†The interaction¬†of two primary¬†building¬†elements, the plinth and¬†the roof, formulate¬†the¬†core¬†functions¬†of the building, lobby¬†and¬†hall,¬†as¬†the spatial¬†continuity¬†of the landscape.¬†The base is¬†developed¬†monolithically¬†from the¬†ground;¬†a metal¬†roof¬†rests¬†on¬†top.¬†The¬†materiality¬†of the plinth¬†expresses¬†the¬†sedimentation¬†of the terrain’s¬†geology¬†as¬†layered¬†ramped exposed concrete. The¬†materiality of the¬†roof¬†structure¬†makes reference to the¬†history of the¬†city and¬†picks up on¬†the art of metalworking¬†and¬†wire manufacturing¬†significant to¬†Iserlohn.
