What an eye-catcher! The architectural office Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp) has designed a spectacular entrance to Mannheim’s art museum Kunsthalle Mannheim, which houses works by Francis Bacon, Vicent van Gogh and Paul Cézanne. The construction of the new building will start in 2014.Photo credits: Kunsthalle Mannheim
International Film Festival
World-famous directors such as Wim Wenders, Jim Jarmusch and Lars von Trier showed their very first works here: At the International Film Festival Mannheim-Heidelberg yet unknown directors get a chance to present their new films to an audience of approximately 60,000 people. From 6th until 16th November 2014 the film festival is already in its 63rd edition – and is thus the second oldest film festival in Germany.
Conversion of former
US Military Bases
Until 2015, Mannheim will gain about 510 hectare of open space due to the closing down of the US military bases. The additional areas present a great opportunity for Mannheim to realise innovative new projects!
Office space, trendsetting shops and smart apartments all in one place, right at the city center – that’s the concept of the new building complex “Q6/Q7”. We are already looking forward to its opening in 2016.
