Most stands at last year’s BASELWORLD as well as the fairground have been fundamentally redesigned: Six crystalline pavilions that house food service, media relations and ticket office string through a mosaic of blooming flower beds. Together with the architectural practice dany waldner AG, schlaich bergermann und partner developed a modular system for mobile buildings that feature a quick and easy installation for versatile use while meeting high design requirements. Functional but elegant detailing was required starting with wide span customized multi-functional aluminium girders carrying the roof membranes, incorporating invisible stressing devices for the membrane, attachments of secondary girders, facade columns and facade panels as well as electrical power supply for the integrated illumination. Laminates of glass panes and varying metallised textiles were used to clad the facade panels made of light weight aluminium frames and connected with integrated connection devices. The structure is resting on legs adjustable in height and adaptable to varying inclination of the ground, requiring a series of movable parts to be designed for multi use, long term performance and corrosion resistance free of lubrication. Combining the advantages of stainless steel, bronze, aluminium and black steel in the strict content of requirements made the project a challenge somewhere between civil and mechanical engineering.
