On the occasion of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, the saai at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) will present Frei Otto’s and Carlfried Mutschlers Multihalle in an exhibition in the context of this year’s biennial theme, “Freespace.” Sleeping Beauty follows on from the successful exhibition “Frei Otto – Thinking by Modeling,” which was hosted by the ZKM in Karlsruhe from November 2016 to March 2017. The show in Venice focuses on the Multihalle and will be the first exhibition in the world dedicated to this fascinating building. Initiators and curators of the exhibition are Berlin-based urbanist and curator Sally Below and Georg Vrachliotis. Both are long-standing advisors to the City of Mannheim on the development of the Multihalle.

Architect of the exhibition is Marc Frohn, professor at KIT, and his company FAR frohn&rojas.

The exhibition gives visitors a double view of the Multihalle. Looking back at the past, it presents original archival material to relate the building’s experimental history. The exhibition also looks toward the future. Today, after several years of vacancy and 40 years after the construction of the Multihalle, which was originally planned as a temporary building, the City of Mannheim is working together with a dedicated group of artists, architects, local residents, concerned citizens, engineers, and universities on a new sustainable concept aimed at ensuring its long-term preservation. This open and collectively designed process is unique in Germany
