The layout of the building functions as a basis for the different innovative technologies exhibited.

Living Tomorrow is a combination of a laboratory, a gallery and an auditorium. It is a temporary accommodation where a variety of businesses can demonstrate their innovative techniques and researches for our future homes or workplaces.
Visitors can get acquainted with the products and services, which can enhance the quality of living or working in the near future.

In addition to the latest technologies the building features alternative heating and cooling methods.

The metal clad, curved futuristic shape derives from the concept that the vertical and horizontal parts of the building form one continuing inside-out-turned shape.  These integrated volumes form the basis for the spatial structure of the interior. All materials used are recyclable or have a low environmental impact.
