In 2018/19 the Stiftung Stadtkultur initiated several workshop discussions with experts from the areas of architecture, culture and politics to sound out future usage scenarios. The central question was: What are the future possibilities of the cultural venue? The discussions resulted in a modular use as a venue for various art forms such as theatre, cinema, concerts and readings, but also for symposiums and exhibitions. To this end, the stage tower and auditorium as well as the lobby should be separately accessible for events and be furnished and equipped in a corresponding way. This can lead to a large “building community” accommodating the activities of different organisers, renters and cooperation partners.
