This student project is a collaboration between the architecture and civil engineering departments at the Technical University of Munich (TUM).
The arena in Kaltenberg is located next to the castle Kaltenberg where medieval festivals take place every year. The students' draft appreciates the existing historical buildings.
The existing timber roof is located at the arena's longer north end.
The new design includes a simple yet elegant glued laminated timber system cantilevering over the grandstands to avoid columns throughout the audience seating. Steel is used for the remaining project which emphasizes the natural appearance of timber.
