A real tornado in a museum


Whoever is near Stuttgart and wants to visit the Mercedes museum, in addition to taking a look at the silver arrows, will also be able to enjoy “the most powerful artificial back in the world”. With a lot of certification from the Guinness Book of Records.

This colossal twister, 34 meters tall and capable of moving 28 tons of air thanks to the 144 turbines from which it is powered, it is the engineers’ answer to fire regulations. To clear the large hall of smoke in case of danger, it would take a large number of doors. But, as you know, doors don’t always fit into designers’ programs: why not think of some imaginative alternatives?

No sooner said than done. For now, the tornado merely entertains passing visitors, but there is no doubt that it is absolutely up to the task. The ticket to access the museum costs 8 euros, but dogs cannot enter : that are in danger of being sucked into the cyclone? (LA)
