Showcasing golden works from the bicycle capital of Germany’s late medieval era, the exhibition space at Münster Domplatz (cathedral square) was cramped and easy to miss, so the small pavilion acts as a spillover. Also important to the overall goal for the exhibition was a demonstration of how gold artifacts are made, which combined with an information point is the principal function of the temporary star-shaped pavilion.

Of course, we couldn’t promote a structure covered in real gold as a green project, but not to worry: the material for the golden facade comes from KME in Osnabrück and is composed of copper alloy that is durable, long-lasting and easily re-used for future projects. We love temporary urban structures, and nobody makes them quite like this young German firm.
