The Carmen Würth Forum will officially open on 18 July 2017. The new building is situated in an open landscape in Künzelsau, southeast Germany. It houses an event hall with a capacity of 3,500 people and a chamber music hall with seating for 580. The uppermost level of the event hall rises as a glazed box above the surrounding landscape while the more intimate concert hall is situated below ground level. The forum will host company and external cultural events, providing an important new venue in the region. Shell construction of the project has now completed and work is set to begin on the interiors.
