Here is another great building to attract your attention; Otto Bock Science Center Medical Technology in Berlin, Germany. This building was designed by German architectural firm Gnädinger Architekten together with the media designers Art+com for the Otto Bock Heath Care Company – a world leader in prosthetics and orthotics. The design is based on the principles of nature; as a model of harmony between technology and people. It was started from the idea of human muscle fibers, a metaphor for the simulation of complex biological structures and process. Thus, the facade bands model the structure of muscle fibers encircling the building structure in soft form. It is the stunning soft appearance which attracts many people’s attention. It combined with a unique façade media production which makes it an open friendly and accessible institution.
The building consists of six stories encompassing around 1.300 square meters (3.900 sq.ft) of floor space. These floors provide public exhibition and consultation spaces. The diamond shaped floors are enclosed by an irregular curved aluminum-glass façade. The following are some pictures of the Otto Bock Science Center Medical Technology building.
