Realization Competition for Sport and Cultural Centre in Stuttgart-Münster

1st Prize

extract of Jury evaluation:

»… the architect develops an extremely coherent concept as a result of a precise analysis of the site.

… the project achieves the desirable economic data… the project is almost without any fault and creates a distinctive building with its appearance both in outer and inner of the site …«


Citizen hall, district library, children care centre as well as sport hall with their cultural and sport requirements have identified features and stand for communication places. The conceptional idea is to work out all these addresses in the context of town planning. The building site has some 6, 5 m terrain change between the Mosel Street and the fairground. In our project the green space opens up to Mosel Street. The city festival will no longer be hidden behind a building. The most important factor in combining all different functions is the accessibility and orientation. The barrier-free building has a lift. A separate athlete’s access from the fairground enables a discrete usage of the sport hall.

»… an impressive building, which will be a central gathering place in Münster …«
