Phaeno Science Center , 2005 , Zaha Hadid
The Phaeno Science Center is an interactive science center in Wolfsburg, Germany, completed in 2005.
The building effectively stands on concrete stilts allowing visitors to the Autostadt to pass through without having to interfere with the workings of the building. Phaeno is connected to the Autostadt via a metal bridge accessed by escalators and stairs either side. The underside of Phaeno is illuminated and the “stilts” are too.
