Designed by J. Mayer H. Architects, the Schaustelle is a temporary pavilion that is created out of scaffolding and serves as a temporary space for four collections of the Pinakothek der Moderne or Modern Art Museum in Munich.

The makeshift structure, which was initiated by the Pinakothek der Moderne Foundation, is located right next to the art museum, which is closed due to renovations. The platform will be used temporarily for the museum’s exhibitions, installations, workshops, talks, and other events.


The Schaustelle includes a ground floor that has a large space for exhibitions. There is also an outdoor area that serves as additional exhibition space. A viewing platform allows visitors to enjoy sights of the city.

The pavilion is made of scaffolding materials that are reusable after the structure is disbanded when the museum completes its renovations. Click through the gallery below to see more images.
