From an indoor piazza at the BMW Museum visitors can explore the seven ‘houses’ that accommodate the different parts of the exhibition. The multi-storey houses allow visitors to see the piazza, the vehicles exhibited on it and the other museum visitors from above, creating an impression of a public space.
Spheres is a mediatecture covering the inner walls of the space with 3D graphics and moving image and expands the perception of the space. The 700 square metres of wall space surrounding the piazza are covered with white monochrome LEDs clad with opaque architectural glass. The LEDs become part of a dynamic façade.
The animations are mostly auto-active. If relatively few visitors are in the museum, the system switches into reactive mode.
