Frei Otto and Rolf Gutbrod, German Pavilion “Expo ‘67” in Montreal, (1965-1967)

For the German pavilion, Otto and Gutbrod interpreted the exhibition motto, “Man and His World” with a “Landscape built by human hands.” The cavernous interior contained modular steel platforms arranged at different levels. The entire area was covered by a single membrane of irregular plan and varying heights. Its contours were determined by the high points of the masts and the low points where the membrane was drawn, funnel- like, down to the ground. Eye loops filled with clear plastic material accentuated these points and the saddle surfaces they created. The prestressed membrane consisted of a translucent skin hung from a steel wire net, which, by eye, ridge, and edge ropes, was connected with the mast heads and anchor blocks.”

The building occupies an entire city block and serves as an important linking element between the various activities which define the neighbouring quarters of the city: retail, commercial, residential, cultural, sport and leisure. Through varying heights a building emerges which gently integrates itself in the existing fabric of the city.

In accordance with urban-planning guidelines, the shallow-plan perimeter building is aligned with the existing streets, complementing the pattern and scale of its surroundings.

From the exterior it resembles the traditional city block, whilst at its centre, protected from the noise of the heavily trafficked streets, lies the heart of the complex, a large, public courtyard. This courtyard is characterized, but not dominated by the daily operations of the bank itself and further enlivened by shops, restaurants, cafés, large reflecting pools, extensive landscaping and public art.

Alles Alte, soweit es den Anspruch darauf verdient hat, sollen wir lieben; aber für das Neue sollen wir eigentlich leben.

gebrauchtegedanken:

Die Frage bleibt

Halte dich still, halte dich stumm,
Nur nicht forschen, warum? warum?
Nur nicht bittre Fragen tauschen,
Antwort ist doch nur wie Meeresrauschen.
Wie’s dich auch aufzuhorchen treibt,
Das Dunkel, das Rätsel, die Frage bleibt.

Theodor Fontane
