City of Halle (Saale)Membrane Assembly:
The central bus station of Halle is an important entryway to the city. It is situated close to the main train station and has been completely redesigned. Nine barrier-free roofed bus stops with PVC/PES membrane roofs
were built. The elliptically designed light roof created by Temme // Obermeier
is the eye-catcher of the square. It ties the individual waiting areas together to form a harmonic whole and thus makes use of the principle of designing ensembles: Forming a whole while maintaining the individual shape of the particular parts. The membrane design underlines the innovative character of the station, also commonly known as the “Space Center”.
