The Zaha Hadid exhibition hall in Nürburg
A futuristic design to welcome thousands of visitors
A 9,000 square metre structure clad with glazed façades supported by tree-like column, images have been shared of Zaha Hadid Architects' new exhibition hall design in Nuremberg, Germany.
The column supports lend the design an natural feel as well as providing important solar shading – protecting the hall's thousands of annual visitors from harsh sunlight.
On the inside, wave-shaped slats line a sloped ceiling, which stands at a height of 20 metres.
"Hall 3A sets another trend in urban development and at the same time is an architectural landmark for further development of the site," explained Jan Hübener, the architect responsible for the structure, based at Zaha Hadid Architects.
