Complex Free Form structure for the Tekniska Museet in Stockholm
In mid-February, the ground-breaking ceremony took place for construction of the Wisdome on the site of the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm. Blumer Lehmann is part of the project and responsible for the detailed planning and implementation of this complex Free Form building.
The new timber structure for the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm is already listed as one of the ten most important buildings in Sweden. It was designed by the Swedish architectural firm Elding Oscarson in collaboration with structural engineer Florian Kosche.
Based on their designs and together with our planning partners – the engineers from SJB Kempter Fitze, Hermann Blumer as well as the parametric planners from Design-to-Production – we developed the unique Free Form building made of spruce laminated veneer lumber, so-called LVL. The actual Wisdome inside the building is made of cross-laminated timber (CLT).
The architectural competition stipulated the use of CLT and LVL as the main construction materials for this innovative construction project. These materials are supplied by project partner Stora Enso, one of the largest forestry companies in the world and a manufacturer of CLT and LVL products.
At Wisdome, difficult and complex questions are converted into breathtaking experiences. The use of cutting-edge visualisation technology provides new perspectives on important issues and makes complicated subject matter easier to understand. Wisdome Stockholm is a hub for academics, schools, businesses and inquisitive museum visitors of all ages.
