Otto Bock Science Center Medical Technology
The Otto Bock Science Center Medical Technology by German architectural firm Gnädinger Architekten was started from the idea of human muscle fibers, a metaphor for the simulation of complex biological processes and structures. Gnädinger created an amorphous, abstract façade, which wraps dynamically around the six-storey, reinforced concrete frame, encompassing around 1,000 square meters of floor space.

The new building is the representative office in the capital city for the medical technology company Otto Bock HealthCare GmbH. The team of Gnädinger Architects, together with the media designers Art+Com developed this unique public stage for the topic of movement, which is the first of it’s kind in the world. An exhibition invites visitors to “discover what moves us”. Starting from the idea of human muscle fibers, the Berlin architectural firm Gnädinger created an amorphous, abstract façade, which wraps dynamically around the six-storey, reinforced concrete frame, encompassing around 1,000 square meters of floor space.

The architectural design was intended to bring high-tech and nature together in a harmonious manner. The organically-formed, white exterior buckled bands encircle the rounded body of the building, based on the model of human muscle fibers, a metaphor for the simulation of complex biological processes and structures.
