An international project on postcolonial moderism
Linking urban development with sustainability
Since summer 2016, Sally Below has been advising the City of Mannheim on project development for the re-launch of the Multihalle, which was built in 1975 for the Federal Garden Show in Mannheim by the architects Frei Otto and Carlfried Mutschler.
The Berlin federal highway or Autobahn 106 (abbreviation: A106) was originally included in Berlin’s land use plan as a southern bypass leading from Schöneberg via Kreuzberg and Alt-Treptow to Köpenick. It was intended to intersect with another autobahn, the A102, at Oranienplatz in Kreuzberg.
The Multihalle, designed by architects Frei Otto and Carlfried Mutschler as a temporary building for the 1975 Federal Garden Show in Mannheim, was never demolished due to its architectural significance and continued to be used until a few years ago.
For its 50th anniversary, the entire Märkisches Viertel housing estate and urban quarter in Berlin was turned into an exhibition.
Internationale Bauausstellungen sind Stadtentwicklung im selbstgewählten Ausnahmezustand – und ein Arbeitsfeld, auf dem vieles ausprobiert werden kann...
International building exhibitions (IBA) are an urban development format that Sally Below is constantly working on.
Sally Below was part of several German Architecture Biennale teams: in Sao Paulo in 2007 with the Deutsches Architekturmuseum and in 2009 with IBA Hamburg; and in Venice in 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2014 with various partners.
