MobiVersum: New Interaction Surface for Young Visitors to Autostadt, Wolfsburg, Germany

22 Mar 2014 – MobiVersum, Autostadt, Wolfsburg

In 2013, J. MAYER H. designed MobiVersum as a new interaction surface for young visitors to Autostadt Wolfsburg, integrated as part of the overall context of Autostadt “People, Cars, and What Moves Them.” A playful learning landscape was developed for a wide range of experiences in dialog with the exhibition Level Green shown on the floor above.

MobiVersum provides an active introduction to the subject of sustainability in all its facets for children of all ages: from the issue of mobility, joint learning and understanding, to courses in cooking. In collaboration with Renate Zimmer (professor, Institut für Sport- und Bewegungswissenschaft at Universiät Osnabrück) a large movement sculpture was created that is unique in terms of its design and the challenges it presents to children’s motor skills.

Depending on their individual level of development, children can interact freely with the installation on various levels on their own or with their siblings or parents, engaging with the challenges presented by the sculpture for their motor skills. The shape of the imaginative, playful structures of solid wood are reminiscent of roots and tree trunks under the luscious branches of Level Green.

The sculptures, which can be used and entered, structure diversified spatial zones with different thematic emphases and inspire the children’s curiosity to discover and explore. Children as tomorrow’s consumers can thus learn early on the importance of a responsible approach to the world’s resources, for they represent our ecological/economical and social future.

On Gallery Weekend, “JOH3”–J. MAYER H.’s newly-opened residential building in Berlin’s Mitte district–will open its gallery space with carpets and furniture from J. MAYER H.’s 2011 exhibition “Rapport” at Berlinische Galerie. The exhibition was organized as a collaboration between the Berlinische Galerie, Euroboden and Vorwerk.

A model of the building will also be on view. Property development group Euroboden has realized J. MAYER H. architects’ unique building on Johannisstraße, which neighbors both Museum Island and Friedrichstrasse.With its multi-unit structure and green interior courtyard, the building is an extraordinary reinterpretation of the classic Berliner apartment house.

The sculptural design of the suspended slat facade draws on the notion of landscape in the city, a quality visible in the graduated courtyard garden and the building’s silhouette and layout. The integrated design concept, which incorporates everything from façade to stairwells, elevators to apartment interiors, promises a unique spatial and living experience with an eye to high design.
