The documenta-Halle was built in 1992 for Jan Hoet’s documenta 9, and has established itself as a major venue for each subsequent documenta. Designed by architects Jourdan and Müller, their design proposal was chosen at the end of 1989 from among 137 entries submitted to a federally funded contest. The architecture of the documenta-Halle is shaped by three primary elements: glass, steel, and cement. The multi-functional building sits next to Kassel’s Staatstheater and 301 Moved Permanently follows the hill line of the northern edge of the Auepark. The building includes exhibition spaces of different heights and sizes.
