The Lorsch Abbey. A site, that not least because of its status as world heritage creates high expectations for visitors. Today, fulfilled only by the impressive Carolingian Entrance Hall. The consequence: a discrepancy between expectance and sobering reality. The concept: attempt of an "explanatory architecture". By picking up on the certain parts of knowledge of the historic whole and explaining them by spatial-atmospheric means. With decidedly contemporary materiality. And the aim to communicate the larger historic context of all the parts of the world heritage site at least as a mise-en-scène.
