Emblematic Giant: The new exhibition halls 9-12 are characterized by power and restraint. The two brothers Bernhard and Stefan Marte scores with their enormous emblematic structure --four exhibition halls are combined into one gigantic, monolithic building measuring 170 m long, nearly 70 m wide, and 16.5 m high in black unified. It is a large structure, divided into four segments, covering the exterior of the building with thin black stripes, and providing access to the building through elliptical incisions, courtyards and foyers in deep, rich carmine. The backbone of the building is the interior circulation axis-- room-high glazed openings guide visitors from the main entrance through the series of exhibition halls--red, black, red, black. As impressive as the elliptical, hyperbolic incisions in the two long sides of the building are, the color scheme of the giant is just as powerful and vivid. Both colors are represented equally, like heraldic tinctures --pure colors without shading, gradients, and nuances remind one of flags and banners. The dimensions and the power of the exhibition halls are impressive. Black in black. Function in construction. The inviting, spectacular foyer between the two exhibition halls is painted entirely in red, and the horizontal ellipsoid at the entrance is mirrored in the five elliptical arches of the load-bearing concrete slab, forming arcades. The large entrance hall #12, as well as the restrooms and the staircases are also painted in deep rich carmine.
