The new tower of the Phänomenta Science Centre in Germany is an LED-lit membrane structure that demonstrates the dynamics of the Earth's rotation to museum visitors. It shelters a 30-meter-long suspended Foucault pendulum that provides an experiential explanation of our planet's revolution and includes a stunning panorama projection of the city of Lüdenscheid. Several teams worked on different aspects of the project, including designers from Beier+Wellach Projekte , who were in charge of the interior, while KKW Architekten worked with Winkels Behrens Pospich Ingenieure für Haustechnik GmbH to develop the lighting system, and WERNER Bauingenieure and formTLIngenieure created the impressive two-part structure made of a steelwork frame and a membrane.
