Ars Electronica Center, Linz, Austria

The Ars Electronica Center in Linz, Austria, is a high-tech life-sciences museum.

Challenge

The building systems for control and safety technology needed to be extended and upgraded as part of the museum’s renovation and expansion, which was completed in 2009.

Solution

Siemens drew on its Total Building Solutions for the museum. Intelligent control of the HVAC technology is carried out via 13 controllers. A link to a central operating station ensures the highest degree of system flexibility. The lighting can be switched on and off using 160 lighting circuits. DALI light controllers allow lighting to be adjusted based on the desired scenario. Siemens also implemented preventive fire safety and security technology using a video technology system and a Variodyn D1 electrical sound system.

Benefits

Employees and visitors to the center enjoy the highest-possible comfort, safety and security. Installations and performances at the center were enhanced with an energy- and cost-efficient technical “stage set” with integrated HVAC equipment, fire safety and modern security technology.
