ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre
A GALACTIC BUILDING ENVELOPE

In Garching near Munich, the stars have been close enough to touch since April. The newly opened state-of-the-art ESO SUPERNOVA visitor centre not only houses the largest 360° planetarium in Germany, but also an exciting, interactive astronomy exhibition. It can still be visited free of charge for the rest of 2018 by those interested in taking a journey through space.

From outside the shape of the building suggests that something extraordinary is concealed within. The architectural design is by the Darmstadt practice Bernhardt + Partner and is modelled on a double star system.

The complete spectacular outer envelope in curved aluminum panels with a 233 m² star roof was design-engineered, fabricated and installed by FRENER & REIFER.
