Carmen Würth Forum, designed by David Chipperfield Architects, was inaugurated in a ceremony on 18 July 2017 to mark Carmen Würth’s 80th birthday. The building reflects both Würth’s financial success and its vision to incorporate art and culture into day-to-day business. The Reinhold Würth Hall, the chamber music hall, offers seats for an audience of 580, while the Great Hall can hold up to 2,500 people and the outdoor premises can accommodate around 10,000 visitors. Nestled in the Hohenloher countryside and surrounded by a sculpture garden, Carmen Würth Forum has quickly established itself as a cultural gathering place. The Association of German ­Architects in Heilbronn-Franconia awarded the ­building the 2017 Hugo Häring Prize.
