Kulturbahnhof Aalen
by a+r Architekten GmbH

Brigida González

The new Kulturbahnhof Aalen brings together Aalen’s industrial history and twenty-first century architecture.

With great sensitivity, the historical building fragments have been successfully integrated into present-day architecture. In the past, the area now known as Aalen’s Stadtoval was occupied, among other things, by railway tracks. As part of the inner-city expansion, the Kulturbahnhof takes a central position: the building, which now accommodates a cinema, a theatre, the music school, high-quality function halls for cultural events and premises for catering, is intended to have a radiant effect throughout the region.

This project has been longlisted in the cultural building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
