the human evolution tree and its different species / time analogies are being instrumentalised into a 3-dimensional physical scale: 1,0 meter represents 500.000 years (1m/500.000years).
this system is used as a tool to define a new museum typology: an exhibition landscape, which allows visitors to have a unique physical experience of human „evolution steps“ in time.
at the same time the building functions as a threshold between the „outside world“ and the prehistoric excavation site.
