25.04.2017 Frankfurt-based architects Gruber + Kleine-Kraneburg planning new Hall 5 for Messe Frankfurt

Total cost for modernising exhibition grounds to exceed one billion euros

A design by Frankfurt architectural office Gruber + Kleine-Kraneburg for replacing Hall 5 during normal operations has been selected by Messe Frankfurt. As Uwe Behm, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt, explains: β€œThe new Hall 5 is to be a part of our master plan for modernising our exhibition grounds, in which we will be investing more than one billion euros in total. For Messe Frankfurt, it is above all business aspects that are the main focus in building the new Hall 5. The project involves replacing the existing Hall 5, which still fulfils its function but is outdated from a construction point of view. Owing to the complexity of demolishing a building that is closely woven into the architecture of the grounds and situated directly adjacent to the Congress Center, Hall 6 and the Via Mobile moving walkway, we need an architectural office whose team can be on location quickly whenever necessary. With this in mind, we consciously approached local architectural offices here in Frankfurt who had qualified by taking part in the competitions for the South Entrance and Hall 12. As we are not building on an outdoor area – as is the case with Hall 12, for example – it is vital for us to have maximum planning precision while examining the existing structures.”
