The company beier+weller project, which has also been engaged by the town through a tendering process, has implemented numerous exhibition projects especially in technical historical museums. These include the Technoseum in Mannheim, the Zeppelin Museum at Friedrichshafen and the Phänomenta at Lüdenscheid.
The exhibition creators impressed with their concept of both a modern family and technically oriented museum, in which individual exhibits tell their stories and plenty of space is available for visitors to discover, try out and be astonished.
Whether for groups of tourists with limited time who only wish to glance over the exhibition, holiday makers in the region who plan a whole day in the IKAREUM, or school classes and flight enthusiasts wanting to deepen their knowledge; the IKAREUM in the St Nicholas Church offers each type of visitor their own individual ‘flight path’.
The COSMOS OF THE LILIENTHAL BROTHERS tells of a time of awakening and belief in technology. Pioneers, collaborators and their emulators have followed the in the footsteps of the Lilienthals and have demonstrated how childlike curiosity, enthusiasm and daring led to a world-moving invention which, like almost no other, defines our lives today. Historic flying machines contrast with the impressive atmosphere of the Gothic nave of the church.
In the LILLENTHAL LAB knowledge can be acquired, deepened and tried out in a work shop environment. The LILIENTHALS FLYING CIRCUS provides insight through experience: the physical adventure of flying can here be simulated in a fun way.
The SKYLOUNGE and the STORK’S NEST in the new spire offer a breath-taking outlook over the Lower Peene Valley Nature Park, and are reachable by a glass lift that travels through the exhibition and through the roof of the church nave up into the sky.
