Remshalden is one of the 16 locations of the 2019 Remstal Garden Show, which stretches over a distance of 80 km along the River Rems. The Rose Pavilion is situated at the highest point of the new public park, providing an all-round view of the landscape. It picks up on the tradition of an open music pavilion and serves as a stage, a meeting place and a visible landmark of the garden show grounds. A reciprocal, load-bearing roof structure rises up from its pentagonal footprint, its supports resting upon each other so that the spans are gradually reduced, closing the roof in a series of rings. In addition to the structure’s playful geometry, which pavilion visitors take time to perceive, the pavilion also recalls the beauty of a rose.
