Sporthallen, Ulm Germany

Another project by Auer und Weber, this one also in southern Germany, in Ulm. This Gymnasium takes a cue from Mies van der Rohe, with a flat roof extending like wings, emphasizing the truss structure, with facades of glass underneath. Yet it achieves a clear seperation of private athletic and more performance spaces. From the parking lot, the landscape transitions from forest to wide open fields. This building preserves the spectacular views of the countryside.
