The Pinakothek der Moderne closed in February 2013 for renovation work and reopened again in September 2013. Set up for the duration of the renovations a makeshift exhibition building - the “SchauStelle”, designed by J. Mayer H hosted different collections. The ground floor of the SchauStelle contains a large exhibition space that can be easily adapted to suit the requirements of various exhibitions, be a platform for workshops, talks, performances, film screenings and video installations and much more besides. The plans foresee the use of the open scaffold structure in the outdoor area as a projection area, making it available as an addition exhibition space. The scaffold structure allows visitors to walk through it, while they catch new glimpses of the city beyond, set off by works on display from the collections. Knippers Helbig was involved within schematic and conceptual design phase, where the main goal was to use a typical scaffolding structure and to minimize number and size of bracing elements. The Project recieved a commendation from the "Preis des Deutschen Stahlbaus 2014" (German Steel Construction Award 2014).
