提及林道这座美丽的岛上城市,最著名的莫过于每年在这里举办的“林道诺贝尔奖得主大会”(Nobel Laureate Meetings)。然而日积月累,既有的场地已经不能满足现代的使用需求。为此,林道市政府发起了改造和扩建会议中心的建筑竞赛。

The renowned Nobel Laureate Meetings are the most distinguished among the various conferences that enjoy the flair of the island town of Lindau. Over the years, however, the conference venue was no longer meeting modern demands. Thus, an architectural competition for the reconstruction and extension of the conference center was launched.

这场竞赛为建造于1981年的会议中心带来了宝贵的重构机会。原先位于Zwanzigerstrasse大街的狭窄且平庸的入口被移至会议中心的东侧,并敞开于连接了街道和湖边走廊的新广场。除了要在会议中心对面修建一座多层的停车场建筑(已于2017年完工,点此查看Inselhalle Lindau停车场项目)之外,竞赛还要求为港务局和船主修建新的消防站、办公空间和淋浴设施。

The competition offered the unique chance to redesign the layout of the conference hall, built in 1981, relocating the entrance from the narrow and unattractive situation on Zwanzigerstrasse to the east side of the hall, opening onto a spacious new plaza extending from the street to the lake promenade. In addition to the multilevel parking garage (completed in 2017, click here to see the project), which was to be erected across the plaza from the Inselhalle, the competition also required an integrated fire station, office space and shower facilities for the harbor master and boat owners.

The newly created plaza provides as an imposing entrance to the new Inselhalle and, at the same time, marks the most northerly point of a sequence of plazas leading southward through the medieval town center of Lindau to its historical harbor.

The competition task called for preserving the extant core of the Inselhalle, while equipping it with new uses. Our architectural concept envisaged leaving the hall clearly discernable from the outside by maintaining the striking roof form but also adding a “little brother” which, viewed from above, would accentuate the new foyer. All surrounding building parts were tied into these two raised points by folded polygonal roof facets, producing an overall sculptural gestalt that presents the new Inselhalle as an architectural entity within the urban landscape. Clearly defined incisions and inward folds in the façade emphasize the building’s primary orientations – toward the front plaza, lake promenade, and town gate – and accentuate the approaches, in particular the new main entrance, which is accessed from the plaza.

An aluminum metal shell underscores the structure’s sculptural quality and stresses the correlation between the two “building blocks” – the Inselhalle and the parking garage. The coated aluminum panels or sheets were used to clad the façades of both buildings and cover the roof of the Inselhalle. The copper color of the outer shell lends the new building a warm and elegant appearance and, at the same time, ties it into the ensemble of Lindau’s historical center with its red tiled roof landscape. Using corrugated aluminum panels to cover the façade with a pattern of irregular, vertical lines, gives the surfaces a homogeneous and, but at the same time, dynamic appearance.

Integrated glazed surfaces are arranged flush with the building volume. In contrast to the sculptural structure of the Inselhalle building, the outer ramps and stairways as well as the lake terrace plinths are rendered in exposed concrete.
