The floor, which developes into the parapet carries moreover the glasselements, layered in front of the existing windows, which funktion as light filter. The glascurtain is an interpretation of the historical structure, constitutes appropriate light and generates homogen background for the objects of the exhibition.
The furniture of the exibiton is a linear structure and referenz in its designing to the chronological development of medial history and make cross references with lines inlaid in the floor. Increasing complexity of the technical progression is interpretated in design, becoming more complex and evolving from lines to spacial elements.
The summit of the exhibition is an interactive virtual reality cinema.Shells which are formed like the exhibition furnitures compose the interior space and the seats for the visitors.
Showcases made of plexiglass are part of the linear designing concept and protect the historical objects against uv-light.
