Porsche Pavilion Autostadt Wolfsburg

© HG Esch

The theme park in the Autostadt (“car city”) Wolfsburg was expanded by another building. With the elegant, racy Porsche Pavilion a homage to the design legend was created. In only 10 months construction time the team Henn Architekten, schlaich bergermann partner, and Centraalstaal International managed to design a jointless roof structure in Monocoque-construction of stainless steel, which dynamically and with a reduced expression of form created a new landmark. On the side of its entrance the pavilion cantilevers asymmetrically out by 25 m over the water surface of the lagoon lying in front of the pavilion. In the interior of the pavilion an experience hall opens up to the visitor, which presents the sports car brand Porsche and its history. An elliptically curved ramp leads to the lower level, an exhibition area of about 400 m².
