CLIENT: State Museum of Natural History Karlsruhe
The State Museum of Natural History in Karlsruhe is one of the most important natural history museums in Germany. With its combination of museum exhibits and live animals in large aquariums and terrariums, this museum offers a particularly unique experience. Exotic animals such as crocodiles and sharks can be found here, as well as Germany’s largest living coral reef.
The new permanent exhibition “Form and Function – Inspired by Nature”, which opened on 27th July 2016 in the refurbished West Wing, concentrates on evolution and bionics. Across an exhibition area of 800 m², visitors can discover the techniques developed by animals and plants in order to adapt to the wide range of environmental influences throughout the course of evolution. With a large number of media stations, visitors are taught about what people can learn from nature to upgrade or develop technical devices.
235 MEDIA realised the media productions and IT technology for 21 installations.
