About the Project

In the course of redesigning the foyer of the headquarters in Stuttgart, the State Archives of Baden-Württemberg decided to employ a new method of cultural communication by introducing a multitouch media table. In close collaboration with the development team from Interactive Scape, custom software was created for the 55-inch touch screen of the accessible table. This software allows visitors to explore selected archival materials from the institution in a continuous flow. In addition to items from the Hauptstaatsarchiv, the table also features 3D models and various historical maps from the Baden-Württemberg regional knowledge portal LEO-BW, which can be freely rotated and zoomed in on through touch, providing a completely new experience compared to the portal's web offering. Using the table's object recognition, visitors can filter the digital copies by themes using category markers or use the ring-shaped magnifying glass to enlarge specific details, providing another tactile and playful way to interact with the objects.
