The flower hall near the ‘Gärten der Welt’ entrance and exit on Blumberger Damm showcases majestically alternating floral displays – ‘an OCEAN of colours’. The temporary exhibition building – which consists of three individual halls, the longest of which is 90 metres – was designed by Gorenflos Architekten from Berlin. In addition to the various flower hall shows held weekly on an area covering more than 3,500 square metres, a gastronomy area with indoor and outdoor seating for 1,000 people invites guests to stay and relax.
The architects have given the ensemble a translucent outer shell, which means that virtually no artificial lighting is needed during the day. The hall with the gastronomy area measures 58 metres; the entire structure is 62 metres wide. The supporting framework consists of glued laminated timber arches on a concrete foundation, resulting in a flexible, column-free space.
