Parametric building model - the successor of 3D. The new construction of the Supernova in Garching was an exceptional challenge.

​A classic distribution of floor levels and sub-areas are not possible, due to the unconventional architecture.  A 3D-Model is mandatory. Changes of sub-areas would end up with serious consequences. For that reason, the building was rendered in parametric fashion.

Intuitive media technology is the specific focus.  Surfaces of the visualization are designed and developed without issues. The highest priority is the use of this complex building system without technical assistance.
