Baden-Württemberg House

At Expo 2020 in Dubai, the Baden-Württemberg House embodies Baden-Württemberg as a hub for innovation, business, research, tourism and culture. At the same time, it sees itself as a stage for the medium-sized companies, corporations, educational and research institutions based in the region, which are among the world leaders in many fields. The House offers companies and educational institutions numerous opportunities to introduce themselves and their services to a broad, international audience in a variety of ways. Important players from Baden-Württemberg present themselves here not only as innovative "lone wolves", but also as partners in a strong network working together on new solutions. In this way, the Baden-Württemberg House becomes a lively place for exchange and encounter.

SHOWPIECE FOR SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION

The arts of engineering
and
architecture

The building showcases the arts of engineering and architecture as well as interdisciplinary collaboration in Baden-Württemberg.

The main body of the building seems to hover above the ground. It is formed around a supporting structure reminiscent of traditional Swabian timber framing. The main body was developed in such a way that the architectural, geometric and structural planning are integrally linked (parametric planning). On the one hand, this approach allows the structure to be optimized to meet a wide range of architectural and structural requirements; on the other hand, it provides the opportunity to respond efficiently to changing user requirements that arise during the planning process, but also after Expo.

The Baden-Württemberg House is a timber hybrid building that stands out for its use of innovative materials. The facade has been constructed of wood from Baden-Württemberg.

SPECIAL FEATURES

Outdoor area

Die Oberflächengestaltung des überdachten Außenbereichs greift die Grundidee des Pavillons als Baukörper, der über einer (Schwarzwald-)Landschaft schwebt, auf und ergänzt diese um zusätzliche Themen aus Wissenschaft und Forschung, welche die Besucher digital entdecken können. Eine abstrakte Topografie verbindet die unterschiedlichen Flächen im Außenbereich zu einem Ganzen. Die Terrasse (Catering), Tribüne und große Freitreppe vor dem Pavillon entwickeln sich im Detail zu einer abstrakten „Blumenwiese“ mit zu entdeckenden Botschaften weiter und schaffen eine hohe Aufenthaltsqualität mit zusätzlichen Sitzmöglichkeiten. „Digitale Blumen“ in der Landschaft können per Smartphone zu verschiedenen Themen aktiviert und mit erweiterter Realität (Augmented Reality) genauer untersucht werden. Innovative Objekte von Partnern des Hauses, Sehenswürdigkeiten oder eine Kindertour werden als 3D-Objekte in die Landschaft projiziert, die dann von mehreren Seiten aus als erweiterte Realität erlebt werden können. Für angenehme Frische sorgt der Kaltluftsee. Der unsichtbare „See“ wird mit Solarenergie betrieben und basiert auf Klimatechnik aus Baden-Württemberg. Mehrmals täglich wird das Phänomen sichtbar, wenn kleine Wassertröpfchen als schwebender Nebel zwischen kalter und warmer Luftschicht kondensieren.

Baden-Württemberg VISION LAB

The special structural frame frees up space underneath the floating structure for a spacious and open landscape, thus making optimum use of the available plot — a truly Swabian design. This is where the Baden-Württemberg Vision Lab is being created: an inviting and multifunctional place for ideas, visions, discoveries, interaction and dialog on different levels from the entrance area to the cold-air lake to the outdoor terrace — developed under the scientific direction of Fraunhofer IAO. Numerous partners of the Baden-Württemberg House have made their contribution to the lab which is also connected to the pavilion’s digital twin. The selected exhibits and future topics of the region are integrated into an immersive and flexible light and space concept, in which visitors become part of Baden-Württemberg’s idea space. The lab can also be used for cultural events as well as happenings, B2B events or artistic performances.
