Tor auf Schalke

SPORTS, CULTURE

We are building a new fan and visitor centre on the club grounds of the Bundesliga team FC Schalke 04. The design of the structure is a reference to a mine. It pays homage to the history of the club, which was founded by coal miners, without being strident. The draft crosses the urban marketplace with the emotional centre of the site. A shared foyer merges the museum with the shop.

The visitor centre extends upwards from a pedestal that constitutes a continuation of the grounds. Towering above it, a roof resting on three pillars. It is interpreted as a part of the continuous inner space, which is subdivided into several sections. The foyer, club museum, merchandise shop and cafeteria blend into each other seamlessly to create a large, sheltered space. All-round glazing visually connects the room with the neighbouring club grounds.
