When Munich's Pinakothek der Moderne modern art museum required a seven-month renovation, it was decided to take the opportunity to create a new temporary space to house exhibitions and events during the time it was closed. Berlin's Jürgen Mayer H. was picked for the task, and the architect produced a novel structure mostly made from scaffolding, dubbed Schaustelle.

Schaustelle (or "show site") is located directly adjacent to the existing museum building and is constructed from scaffolding and other reusable parts. Due to this reusable design, once the Pinakothek reopens, the temporary structure will be disassembled and the scaffolding used elsewhere.

The ground floor of Schaustelle contains a large exhibition space, and its mostly transparent facade allows visitors to walk around the indoor space while still glimpsing views of the surrounding city. The building also boasts a 17-meter (55-foot) high viewing platform, and regularly plays host to film screenings and video installations.

However, if you'd like to see the Schaustelle in person, you'll need to get yourself to Munich rather quickly, as it will be taken down following the newly-renovated Pinakothek's reopening later this month.
