Porsche Pavilion by HENN Architects

HENN Architects have completed the Porsche Pavilion at the Autostadt in Wolfsburg, Germany. “The organically shaped constructing is sitting – in mirrored place to the Volkswagen Pavilion- at the central axis of the theme park and delivers 400 m² of space for exhibitions and presentations. Its characteristic silhouette will turn out to be a distinctive icon amid the lagoon landscape of the Autostadt. Curving lines and exciting bends make the Pavilion a dynamic however decreased sculpture with its traits derived from the Porsche brand image.
As developed by HENN, the structure captures the dynamic flow of driving with a seamless creating skin. Its lines choose up speed and slow down just to plunge forward in massive curves with ever-changing radii. A matte-finished stainless steel cladding forms the flush envelope of this vibrant structure, creating the impression of a homogeneous unity, while making a constantly altering look depending on light and weather situations. At the entrance the pavilion cantilevers 25m over the lagoon’s water surface in front. Below the cantilever of the huge asymmetrical roof, a sheltered external space opens up. This space is visually connected to the surrounding landscape, but forms its personal acoustic enclosure, delivering seating for a couple of hundred guests. Architecture and landscape, interior and exterior as effectively as roof and facade are brought with each other by HENN in their architectural idea of a coherent, flowing continuum. The external location around the pavilion was made by landscape architects WES and integrated into the overall idea of the theme park. This is how the new piazzetta creates a connection amongst the Porsche Pavilion and the adjacent Volkswagen Commercial Automobiles Pavilion by implies of water attributes and trees. By walking around the sculptural Porsche Pavilion, further highlights of the Autostadt can be found.”
