Mainau 2040 Masterplan 1st Prize
The Mainau 2040 Masterplan competition includes a large number of different functions and buildings, all of which contribute to the same strategy: the sustainable further development of Mainau as a cultural treasure. The island is already listed as a monument of special importance. The focus was on the careful use of resources in harmony with nature in the sensitive region of Lake Constance as well as on aesthetic-cultural sustainability. The highlight and landmark is the new Palm Cathedral, which forms the new focal point of the island. The self-contained building, which was developed especially for this location, consists of four barrel-like glass volumes. These contain event and exhibition facilities, a restaurant and a jungle playground. Four differently shaped, elegant structural elements – evocative of floral structures – createimpressive spaces and are the unique selling point of the new building, responsible for its high recognition and identification value.
