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 follows the hill line of the northern edge of the Auepark. The building includes exhibition spaces of different heights and sizes.
