Opened in spring 2019, Experimenta is now the most ambitious and largest science center in Germany.
In autumn 2016, we started feasibility studies and calculations for 2 floors in the brand new Experimenta building. In September 2017, after extensive preparation, we started batch delivering 63 interactive installations together with BRUNS. For the duration of 1 year, on average 8 multimedia exhibits of varying size needed approval each month. Just to get the job done in time.

Floor 1 in the building is all about materials. The gallery, called StoffWechsel, leads visitors through Hart, Ungreifbar, Leuchtend, Strukturiert and Lebendig. There's a whole lot to see, hear, feel and play.
From a crashed car to a wind tunnel, a water zone, ice sculptures, a speeddate with life and off to the all important question... When does a banana actually die?
Everything culminates into a grand, material avatar dance finale.
On floor 3, WeltBlick is all about becoming a world explorer. Visitors are guided through 5 zones Observe, Demonstrate, Model, Calculate, Simulate - each focusing on visitors acquiring different explorer tools. The whole gallery has an atelier vibe to it using friendly materials like cardboard and is lined by a gigantic construction, a low poly 'yellow snake'.
