the simulators are full-size replicas of a boeing 737 and a learjet 45x cockpit, offering the full technical performance and a realistic visual experience by projecting the pilots view on a 230° screen around the cockpit.
the visual illusion continuous outside the cockpit by creating a dynamic and abstract scenery of an airport runway. the architectural concept defines the positions of the simulators in order to complete the remaining aircraft parts graphically. from the most significant views the built and painted aircraft-parts match together to create a visual continuity between them. the wall graphics become salient and the built components seem to disintegrate.
from other perspectives the graphics reveal their real expansion in space. they overlay the walls, floor and ceiling to reach the real dimensions of the original aircrafts. the emerging distortions exaggerate the shapes of the airplanes and create varying figures in combination with the built components.
