Competition multi-purpose hall


Competition multi-purpose hall

The competition programme called for the possibility of a spatial combination of ballroom and multi-purpose hall. A double hall was planned for the tight site, which can be divided or united by large sliding walls and whose fixtures - ballrooms, restaurant and conference rooms or grandstands and sports rooms - are independent of the hall structure. Car parking spaces were provided in a separate building. Reinforced concrete arched trusses resting on steel supports with a span of 50 metres were planned for the construction.
