The pavilion offers a large auditorium with a stage: it will be the central information point for the jubilee activities around the city and a meeting point with a café. The twisted pattern of the pavilion refers to the strictly geometric-radial lay out of the Baroque planned city of Karlsruhe with the castle as the focal point, transforming it into a spatial field of lines. On several layers in and on the structure, exhibition platforms, resting spaces, and viewing platforms will emerge.

In a competition with tendering, J. MAYER H. und Partner, Architekten and Rubner Holzbau received the commission for their proposed dynamic wood construction using bar profiles. Construction begins in March 2015.
