The building lets visitors experience an architectural setting that brings science and technology into focus – from the illustration of fluid dynamics on the facades, to the spectacular Helix staircase that meets the guests as a shining icon immediately upon passing the main entrance. The copper-clad stairway spirals up through the building and leads visitors onto four floors filled with experiences. The significant refurbishment future-proofs a modern Experimentarium, resulting in a doubling of the exhibition area with a total of 16 interactive exhibitions. The building’s different functions are made visible to the city in the form of stacked boxes, which are offset from the base and open themselves towards their surroundings with large expanses of glass, creating a visual connection to the scientific universe inside. The boxes are clad with a lightweight facade of perforated aluminium panels, forming a contrast to the base of the preserved existing brickwork.
