Maciej Jakub Zawadzki wins German Design Award 2020
The IAA Professor Maciej Jakub Zawadzki and his team are one of this year’s winners of the German Design Award. The Augmented Reality Science Center in Opole, Poland, is the winning project in Excellent Communications Design and Interactive User Experience categories.
The creators have designed a science centre focused on space, using the most advanced tools. By applying augmented reality (AR) technologies, they have created not only an outstanding experience for the visitors but also substantial savings.
A huge disc is hanging from the ceiling and becomes a giant planet-like sphere due to the projection directed onto it. This attraction is also visible from outside the building due to the glass facade.
According to the jury of the international contest, visiting the exhibition becomes a unique experience through the use of sophisticated AR technologies and maps. The project of MJZ has successfully combined AR installation with architecture.
This was the second such award to MJZ. With their Filling Station of the Future project they have also won German Design Award 2018.
The award ceremony was held on 07 February in the context of the Ambiente fair in Frankfurt am Main. The Augmented Reality Science Center project will be exhibited in the Museum Angewandte Kunst, designed by Richer Meier, until 23 February 2020.
