Paul Fast speaking in Berlin on Mannheim Gridshell
August 22, 2019
Founding Partner, Paul Fast, will be in Berlin to present on “Ambitious Timber Projects and Rescue of an Icon: Mannheim Multihalle” on September 27th, as part of the Vision und Konstruktion 2019 conference.
Fast + Epp won an international competition to undertake a design review and retrofit of this historical monument, and restore the timber gridshell to its original splendor. The team has developed a solution that would allow for the building to remain a permanent cultural fixture of Mannheim and is part of an association raising funds to ensure its preservation.
