Raumwelten Pavillon - Lichtwolke

Ludwigsburg (D) 2015

RAUMWELTEN is an established event for scenography, architecture and media. In 2015 the event took place in an air-supported pavilion for the first time. It shall be used the next three years.

The form of the pneumatic pavilion reminds of a donut – with a size of more than 200 m² and a height of 6 m. It was designed by studends of the Hochschule für Technik (class Prof. Thomas Hundt) and by students of the Staatlichen Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart supervised by Prof. Tobias Wallisser and Sebastian Schott.

formTL converted the design to an air-supported membrane structure. Special is, beside the individual form of the membrane structure, the foundation with internal gravel bags. To avoid damage to the car park sealing under the lawn, the ballast bags are not embedded into the ground.
