Since Futurium opened in September 2019, more than 617,000 visitors have already stop over Futurium by discussing, trying out and exploring a variety of different futures.
During World War II, the area was massively destroyed, then the site was attached to the Soviet sector. In 1990, after the demolition of the Berlin wall, the area became part of the urban development project for the new government district.
The Futurium building asserts its sculptural identity in its urban context. The building is setback in order to generate new public spaces. It is also folded upwards to create urban high points. In order to unify the exterior spaces, the entire ground surface is coated with seamless asphalt, and articulated with a pattern of dots that give the project its character.
Seating options, path and rest areas are playfully arranged within the pattern. The concrete Twig is combined with the white Twig Air model that can be backlighted at night. Vegetation is placed following the floor pattern and the trees are in metallic Carmel tree grid.
