DAM Pavilion

A pavilion was designed for the German Architecture Museum DAM in Frankfurt. With an area of 270 m² and approx. 900 m², it offers space for up to 200 people. An auditorium and a café are integrated. The surface of the pavilion is biaxially curved and consists of transparent ETFE film. The steel supporting structure can be completely dismantled.

Climate Concept Without Technical Aids

The climate concept was developed by Werner Sobek Green Technologies based on analyses of the climate, shading and irradiation. The shading is based on the irradiation levels on the surface. The natural ventilation is controlled by positioning the openings to optimise the flow. Technical aids can thus be dispensed with.
