Competition for Koelnmesse 3.0: ingenhoven architects gets to the final
Ingenhoven architects reached an important interim milestone in the current architects' competition for Koelnmesse 3.0. The design was selected by the jurors from a total of 81 submissions and remains one of the two chosen favourites. “This design rounds out its strong presentation with a generously proportioned roof at the new Entrance East and thus symbolically gives Koelnmesse a new structural dimension”, said the jury. “Within the terminal, the design creates an interior space with a high degree of transparency and striking funnel-shaped structures - a space that leads one to expect an excellent quality of stay.” Koelnmesse plans the biggest investment programme in the company's history calling for investments totalling more than 600 million euros to be made by 2030. The final winner of the competition will be announced in the near future.
