think – explore – develop
Innovative and globally unique: the Multihalle was built in Mannheim’s Herzogenriedpark for the German National Garden Show of 1975. Mannheim architect Carlfried Mutschler designed the extraordinary structure and Pritzker Prize winner Frei Otto created a roof construction that made the hall an architectural masterpiece.
The world’s largest timber grid shell construction received listed building status in 1998. In the spirit of Frei Otto’s thinking, the Multihalle is now becoming a versatile space of possibilities – as a symbol of Mannheim’s future-oriented urban development.
