Higher, further, faster: where is sport heading?


The exhibition about world of sports for the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum

The spectacular special exhibition “Computer.Sport” demonstrates the significance of computer-based technology for today’s sports. On 1,000 square metres, visitors receive a breathtaking insight into the latest developments in this field and can try their hand at different activities.

The exhibition reflects the world of high-performance sports today. Computer and electronic media make sports more attractive, performance is more easily measured and systematically increased, training is optimised and new materials are developed.

Visitors can find out the effects by themselves: by playing a round of golf in the simulator, for instance; by observing themselves when sprinting; or gauging their reactions while tobogganing in the wind tunnel. They can also play at being a sports commentator in a TV studio. “Computer.Sport” is divided into four different subject areas: “Multimedia Sports Worlds”, “Performance through Training”, “The Power of Material” and “Virtual Sports Worlds”.

The exhibition design interprets the dynamism of sport in an eloquent visual language and through the use of forms: a dynamic thread runs through the entire exhibition and invites visitors to immerse themselves in the world of sports. The construction elegantly combines design and functional components.
