ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN

In addition to science and technology, the museum also focuses on society. The main focus is on how culture will change by the latest technology and its support in everyday life. Therefore, cooperation between humans and robots plays a significant role in the exhibition. A further topic the museum deals with is climate change. Among other things, the exhibition deals with the following questions: "Which technologies can control the climate change?" and "What will life look like in the future in 35 or even 50 years? Besides the permanent exhibitions, the museum also offers space for temporary exhibitions dealing with questions concerning the future of our planet. Also, the Museum is much more than a museum: It offers a worldwide contact point for young talents, companies, and people interested in technology. In addition to professional exchange, participants will also find competent support for the implementation of forwardlooking ideas. The building would have been an impossible undertaking without the help of new, sophisticated technologies. The lead consultant on the project, the UK’s BuroHappold Engineering, says it would have been an impossible undertaking without parametric design and Building Information Modelling (Bim). Parametric design is a process based on algorithmic thinking, which allows specific variables or parameters to be manipulated to alter the outcome of an equation. Bim is a threedimensional model-based technology for construction professionals to collaboratively design and document projects. Although Bim has been around for many years, the industry has been slow to embrace it.
