Comment Vous imaginez-Vous le musée de l'avenir?

L' artiste Käthe Wenzel a parlé aux visiteurs du Musèe Technologique de Berlin. Elle a traduit les réponses en des dessins qui font partie d'une site internet panoramique interactive de la "Ladestraße" au musée.

Les "Images de Demain" sont exposés en plein-air à la Ladestraße - là où sera construit le Musée Technologique de l'avenir.


"An airplane cockpit would be interesting. I know those
only from films. There are three hundred buttons…
maybe with an explanation what all the buttons are for.
The best would be if the whole thing were a flight simulator. Not like the ones you know, those with a joystick, but
a real cockpit where you can sit inside."
