The 'IdeenPark', initiated and organized by the technology corporation ThyssenKrupp is designed to excite people for technology. From the 10th to 23rd of August, the trade fair ground in Essen was transformed into a creative city made up of different quarters.
It offered the 320.000 visitors to do their own experiments and talk to researchers and developers. This was meant to give young people new impulses.
One highlight in the city laboratory quarter was the ZENDOME.domescape. With its supporting structure made of certified steel/ stainless steel the geodesic domes were part of the technology experience world. Responsible for the dramatic concept and the design of the venue was Milla & Partner.
About 200 partners supported the festival with their know-how of science, research and industry. Over 600 free workshops, 400 exhibits, shows and concerts lead to a new visitor record.
